President

Rhonda Lane

I became involved with the Wolverines in 2002 when our son joined their football program.  In 2005 I approached the Organization with an opportunity to conduct bingo as their fundraiser.  Throughout the years with the Wolverines I served as Fundraising Coordinator and Treasurer.  My initial vision back then was to be able to offer scholarships to our Pinkerton graduates.  From there the Foundations was formed. It has been one of the shining moments in time for me that the Foundation has evolved to what it is today.  I will always take great pride in the impact the Foundation has had in aiding non-profits within our community.

Vice President

Peter Curran

I served as Commissioner of the Wolverine Youth Football Association from 2008 – 2013. It was during my
tenure at the Wolverine Youth Football Assoc. that we began discussions of creating the Dream Foundation.
The funding we were receiving for the Football and Cheer program, through Wolverine Bingo, was more than needed to run these programs. We all felt that we could use some of this surplus to assist other organizations
financially. Finally in 2017 the Derry Wolverine Dream Foundation was created.
Since then it has given me great pleasure in assisting other local non-profits as well as awarding scholarships
to deserving students. Now more than ever these organizations and college bound students are in need of
financial help.
It has been my privilege and honor in providing this financial help.

Treasurer

Charlene Williamson

Working in the banking industry for over 40 years, accepting the Treasurer position of the DW Dream Foundation board was a very easy decision.  I volunteered for the WYFA (Wolverine Youth Football Association) for many years, starting as a team Mom for my daughters cheerleading team, then honored to be nominated for the WYFA Board of Directors Treasurer position. This led to me accepting a position on the Board of Directors as Treasurer of the Dream Foundation.  I am honored to be a part of such a caring foundation.  Witnessing the gratitude of recipients that are awarded Academic Scholarships and Community Grants is heartwarming.  Volunteering for this foundation is exciting since we get to fulfill future dreams.

Secretary

Debra Marks

I first started with the Wolverine o organization when my son played football. I was really impressed by the integrity of the people involved in the organization and with their commitment to the kids. When they needed a secretary, I gladly came on board. I was the secretary for the football and cheer program for about 13 years. I was pulled out of retirement when a secretary was needed for the Dream Foundation. I loved the idea of
what the Dream Foundation is all about, helping deserving students with their educational goals and assisting other nonprofits that are helping people in our local communities. It's really opened my eyes to all the wonderful and hard work that is going on all around us.

Compliance Officer

Fred Hamel

Football is a big part of my life. I started playing when I was 11 years old and played until I was 24. When I moved to Derry, my son started playing. After watching his first year, in 1994 I joined the coaching staff of the Wolverines, and it became part of our
family until 2022. During this time, I was fortunate to work with a great bunch of talented people, so I stayed with the program. I had the opportunity to join the Dream Foundation board and work with the awesome people who were also once Wolverine board members and are now part of the Dream Foundation.
