Alan Egly Retires
A long career in public service in the Quad Cities is about to end. Tuesday Alan Egly retires after serving as executive director of the Doris and Victor Day Foundation for 27 years.
Foundation board president Bill Stengel says Egly was a Unitarian minister when he was hired in 1987. And since then Egly and the Foundation have supported a variety of projects and agencies in the Quad Cities. One example is the Community Health Care clinic on 11th Street in Rock Island.
The foundation awards grants for emergency assistance, affordable housing, child care, job traning, education, and public broadcasting.
Stengel says he's also made a difference at the national level - he is one of the founders of the Association of Small Foundations. It how has about 3,000 members.
Taking Egly's place when he retires will be the Day Foundation's current program officer, David Geenen.
