Millhon graduated from Denison University and received his master of arts in teaching from Antioch Putney-Yellow Springs, Ohio. He has lived on Whidbey since 1994.

Gibbon is currently in his seventh year as superintendent of Oak Harbor Public Schools. He serves on a number of regional boards and has twice been recognized as the Best of Whidbey Community Leader of the Year. He received his masters and doctorate in education from Seattle Pacific University.

The foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life on Whidbey Island by providing support for the nonprofit sector, assisting donors to build and preserve enduring assets for charitable purposes, and meeting community needs through financial awards.
