Herzing Educational Foundation Welcomes Former Green Bay Packer to Board Position
MILWAUKEE, (May 24, 2011) – The Herzing Educational Foundation welcomes former Green Bay Packer, Darryl Ingram, to its five member Board of Directors.
“I am thrilled that Darryl has decided to join us. His leadership and commitment will help expand the scope of scholarships and services available through the foundation assisting us with promoting the foundation’s mission,” said Foundation President Henry Herzing.
Ingram received an M.B.A. from DeVry University’s Keller Graduate School of Management and an undergrad in political economy from the University of California at Berkeley where he played college football. Out of college he was the 108th pick in the 1989 NFL draft to the Minnesota Vikings. He ended his career with the Green Bay Packers after the 1994 play offs.
After his pro football career, Ingram worked for the wireless industry in design, development and technical support and ran his own college sports recruiting and consulting agency. Currently he is a partner at the i-Formation Realty Group – Realty Executives Integrity where he specializes in commercial real estate sales and listings in southeast Wisconsin.
Ingram reflected on his new role on the Board, "My parents provided me with the foundation and understanding that learning, whether formal or not, is a lifelong pursuit. I am honored that I will be working with the Herzing Educational Foundation to help others further their path in this regard. It is exactly the legacy my parents have given me and the legacy I wish to pass on to my young son.”
His first order of business with the foundation is helping to plan the first annual “Golfing for Grads” golf outing scheduled on September 26, 2011 to benefit the Herzing Scholarship fund and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee Scholarship Fund.
In addition to being the newest member of the Herzing Educational Foundation’s Board of Directors, Ingram is also a member of the Black MBA Association and the NFL Alumni. In his spare time enjoys playing sports and spending time with his son
Along with Ingram, the Herzing Educational Foundation Board includes Henry Herzing, Peter Heffernan, D.C., Ava Youngblood and James Hutton, Ph.D. The Herzing Educational Foundation is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit charitable corporation that supports Herzing University and the communities in which it has campuses. Founded in 2009, it began with the core belief that career colleges and universities have an important impact on student learning and the communities they serve. The Foundation provides scholarships to Herzing University students and supports the Herzing campus communities by funding community projects and local charities such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
