The Board of Trustees of PCEF has been led for many years by Joe Little, President.  Recently, Joe has decided to step down from the Board, after years of service and countless hours of volunteer commitment to our organization since its inception.  We thank you, Joe, for all you’ve done for PCEF.


Joe’s Legacy

Joe Working on the Pack a Backpack Program

Joe has guided PCEF through many growing pains, including recent changes in the school district and has created a solid working partnership with Dr. Fegley and the current administration.

During his tenure as President, PCEF donated over $1.5 million back to the district and community. Joe leaves behind a stronger organization that is well-equipped to do even more for the children and students of the Phoenixville area.

We wish Joe all the best as he now devotes his volunteer time to the Senior American Legion Baseball League and we thank his wife Leslie and their 2 children for being so understanding when Joe was at yet another late night PCEF meeting.


Kelly Connors Elected New President

The Board of Trustees unanimously voted to elect Kelly Connors as the new President. Kelly has a long record of service to the Phoenixville area, including sitting on the PASD School Board for 6 years and chairing its Curriculum Committee.

She has been involved with PCEF since its inception as well, serving on the Board for several years and chairing its successful winter fundraiser in 2009, 2010, and 2011. She is married to Paul and they have 2 daughters in the Phoenixville schools. Kelly is a longtime employee of Frees Insurance Inc.

Kelly notes, “Joe Little is leaving this foundation a very strong organization, and I know I have very big shoes to fill, I hope to follow his example. Thank you for everything Joe.”

The Board is looking forward to the future of PCEF under Kelly’s leadership.
