​Board of Directors President Spotlight—Stephen McCammon

Stephen McCammon is the new President of the Janus Board of Directors. He has been a Board member since 2013. He lives with his wife Mary Ann. They are spending the month of February in Yelapa, Mexico where Mary Ann will teach quilting to the women in the village so they can sell their work to visiting tourists. We appreciate the time he took to answer our questions for this interview.

What inspired you to join the Janus Board of Directors?

When I was a banker, I got to know Janus through handing their bank account and was inspired by its goals and work in the community. When I retired in 2013, I began to ask myself, “How can I make a difference today?” I immediately thought of Janus and decided join the Board.

Why do you think it is important to invest in your community?

When I was asked to be Board of Director President, I realized that even though I am retired, I still want to have the ability to make a difference in my community, especially for our youth. After all, we are in this life together. The Janus Scholarship Program caught my interest because I believe that education is the cornerstone for our country and it can have a wide spread effect on the well-being and happiness for of all of us. I want each of them to know that there are people wo care for them and want them to succeed in their education.

What do you hope to accomplish in your term as Board President?

I would like to help lead the continued evolvement of Janus and to ensure that the Board implements new programs where needed. We have to take advantage of all the potential opportunities for successful, beneficial growth of the organization.
