Tom Cassady and Terry Dye have been elected to the board of directors of the Front Range Community College Foundation.
Cassady retired from Broomfield-based Ball Corporation in 2015 after 27 years with the company. He held various finance and accounting positions before being named the director of accounting systems.
Before joining Ball, Cassady was the finance director for the Toledo Zoological Society. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in accounting and finance from St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind., and earned a master’s degree in accounting from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He is a Certified Management Accountant.
Dye founded Dyecrest Dairy in 1970. It has been located in Fort Collins since in 1984. The dairy has 1,664 milking-age animals, making it one of the largest all-registered herds in the country.
Dye became intrigued with FRCC after his step-daughter-in-law enrolled and earned a scholarship from the FRCC Foundation.
In 2013, he established the Dyecrest Dairy Scholarship, giving preference to his employees and their children. The scholarship also funds nontraditional students who are single mothers and students pursuing careers in technical fields at the Larimer Campus.
“These two new board members have financial and business experience essential to the continued growth and success of the foundation,” said Ryan McCoy, foundation executive director.
For two decades, donations to the foundation from individuals, corporations, and organizations have established a much-needed scholarship program and endowment fund to benefit Colorado students and support priorities of the college.
