Board of Directors - 2018

Tammy Pifer - Brightpoint Headstart/Early Headstart

Board Chair/President

Tammy Pifer spends her days helping others at Brightpoint. An empty-nester herself, she manages home visiting programs that serve prenatal woman and families with infants and toddlers. She wants to see Noble County be a strong, healthy community where people have the opportunities to live to their fullest potential.

"I am passionate about helping families in poverty and especially families with infants and toddlers. I have this quote in my office:

'Every child needs one person who is crazy about him.' – Urie Bronfenbrenner"

Adam Peters - Campbell & Fetter Bank

Board Treasurer & Finance Committee Chair

Adam Peters may have grown up in Woodburn, but he has wonderful summer memories at the Atwood Campground and Dallas Lake. These days, much of his life revolves around the lake. He enjoys kayaking and wakeboarding, has helped with the Annual Westler Lake Poker Run for a number of years and was part of a group that removed and reinstalled a concrete damn for the Lake Chain.

“I think the benefit of our community is that Kendallville still has a small-town feel, while at the same time having a diverse number business and industries.”

Judge Michael Kramer - Noble County Circuit Court

Member At Large

So many of the hopes and dreams of Michael Kramer align with the mission of the United Way of Noble County, that it was natural for him to become a board member. He feels children should be loved and supported, and helped to develop a lifelong love of learning. He hopes for financial security of Noble County residents, and that they will be safe and healthy in their homes.

“Noble County residents are open-minded and willing to embrace new ideas and new people.  There is a strong sense of community and ownership.  If there is a problem, Noble County residents step up to fix the problem rather than wait for someone else to do it.”
