Financial Advisory Board
The Financial Advisory Board, formerly called the Continuing Care Fund Board, advises the community on the investment and use of the Continuing Care Fund, the annual budget, and major maintenance projects.
Three Sisters and three lay people are appointed or re-appointed to the board annually.
On November 23, 2008, the Sisters expressed their appreciation for Frank Hiegel of Little Rock, Joe Nolte of Fort Smith, and John Zeiler of Conway. They were founding members of the Continuing Care Fund Board in 1980 and served faithfully and lovingly for over twenty years. The three men and their wives were invited to dinner at the monastery and each was given a clock engraved with his name and the following inscription: In appreciation for faithful loving service to your Sisters at St. Scholastica Monastery, Fort Smith, Arkansas.”
Present members: Sisters Maria DeAngeli (Prioress), Audrey Becker (Treasurer), Anne Michele Raley, Elise Forst, and Kimberly Prohaska; Ravi Thiagarajan (Chief Financial Officer), Leo Anhalt, Bob Doss, and Carol Geels.
