Posted February 3, 2022 at 8:14 am by

Dr. John Moal­li, Michael Solt­man, and Dun­can Wil­son joined the Board of Direc­tors of the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion last month. SJICF shared with the San Juan Update a brief overview of each new board mem­ber’s back­ground and achievements.

John Moal­li is already an active vol­un­teer on the island and his work with local high school stu­dents with dis­abil­i­ties inspired him to devel­op and teach a course on design for the dis­abled at Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty, where he is an Adjunct Pro­fes­sor in the school of engi­neer­ing. John also sits on the board of trustees of the Spring Street Inter­na­tion­al School. He earned his doc­tor­ate from MIT and still enjoys a reward­ing career at Expo­nent, a sci­en­tif­ic and engi­neer­ing con­sult­ing com­pa­ny. John brings an ana­lyt­i­cal, com­pas­sion­ate and hands-on approach to local challenges.

Dun­can Wil­son is a famil­iar face on San Juan Island. Dun­can is an attor­ney and has served as the Town of Fri­day Har­bor Admin­is­tra­tor for the last ten years. Dun­can also serves on the San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre Board. He is a grad­u­ate of West­ern Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­si­ty with a BA degree in Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion and obtained his law degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Puget Sound Law School. Dun­can brings a host of admin­is­tra­tive and orga­ni­za­tion­al man­age­ment skills to the Foun­da­tion. His expe­ri­ence as Town Admin­is­tra­tor is sig­nif­i­cant as the Foun­da­tion con­tin­ues to devel­op pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ships with local and state governments.

Michael Solt­man is recent­ly retired from pub­lic edu­ca­tion and many Islanders will remem­ber him as Super­in­ten­dent of the San Juan Island School Dis­trict from 2002–2009. Through­out his thir­ty-five-year career in edu­ca­tion, Michael made time to serve on a vari­ety of boards and com­mit­tees includ­ing edu­ca­tion­al foun­da­tions, non-prof­it child/­fam­i­ly-focused orga­ni­za­tions, and pro­fes­sion­al orga­ni­za­tions. A large por­tion of the Foundation’s work sup­ports edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties across mul­ti­ple areas of inter­est. Michael’s exper­tise will help inform and grow this impor­tant area.
