Name: Bob Tremblay
Why did you decide to become a member of the UWTC Board of Directors, and what are your duties? As Superintendent of the Framingham Public Schools, I am proud of the partnership that our school department has with the United Way of Tri-County. UWTC takes great care to provide important and necessary resources to families in our community and I am proud to be the voice of those families as a member of the Board of Directors.
What is your favorite part of being on the board? I enjoy the networking opportunities with the many business and non-profit leaders who come to the table each month with a shared interest in helping others.
Which UWTC program(s) have you volunteered for?
Serving dinner at the Pearl Street Café
Distributing books through Ready to Read
Why do you think it's important for people to volunteer, and what's your best advice for someone interested in volunteering? Volunteerism is just one way to put others ahead of yourself. There are important and powerful lessons to be learned if you are truly invested in the work. Take an interest in helping others as it may just be yourself that you are helping the most.
If you work, can you tell us where and what you do for work? If you are retired, what did you do before? I am Superintendent of the Framingham Public Schools, a position I have held since my appointment in 2017.
How does being on the UWTC Board help you engage with our local communities and give back? Whether volunteering at the Pearl Street Café or attending events sponsored by UWTC, every moment that I engage with the Framingham community translates into a new relationship that I have forged. Each relationship is important to me and making those personal connections is how I am able to know how to give generously to the community that surrounds me each day.
What are some of the benefits of being a member of the UWTC board? As a member of the UWTC Board, I feel that I can offer my knowledge of the school community to members of the Board as decisions are being made on strategic priorities and investments.
What do you like to do outside of work? Outside of my work as Superintendent of Schools, I enjoy time with my family and being outdoors. I also have a love for the arts and try my best to find time to make music whenever my schedule allows.
