    Christian Volz, Engineering Manager, was recently selected to serve on the Sun Foundation’s Board of Directors.  The Sun Foundation, founded by educator/artists Joan Root and Robert Ericksen in 1973, is an arts and science educational organization. Their mission is to strengthen and advance the arts and environmental sciences in rural and urban communities by providing quality and innovative programs.  Illinois American Water has partnered with the Sun Foundation on the Clean Water Celebration for 25 years. The two-day education event reaches approximately 3,000 area students annually to encourage wise water use, environmental stewardship and more.
    As a Sun Foundation board member, Volz will serve as an ambassador in the community and advance the mission of the organization. Board members meet regularly to provide guidance and direction for the organization to further the impact in communities on local, generational and global levels. Christian will bring his engineering expertise as a new member of the Clean Water Celebration Planning Committee. He will also join the Sun Foundation Art and Nature Center Trail safety and maintenance group.
