Supporting Our Schools

Meet the Foundation for Eden Prairie Schools’ new executive director.

Hired in March, Sarah Cheesman may be the new kid at school, but she knows exactly where she’s going as the executive director at the Foundation for Eden Prairie Schools, a non-profit organization that supports public schools in Eden Prairie. With her 10 years of nonprofit experience, as well as her record as an active school volunteer while guiding her own son through the Eden Prairie school system, Cheesman is more than ready to start the school year off right. “[I want to] continue to build on the success of the organization,” she says. “My goal is to be able to continue to make [funds] grow and provide more support to our district.”
