For board member David Schriver, one of the biggest misfortunes of our world today is that so many kids have lost the innocence that childhood is supposed to guarantee. Though his professional work as an accountant focuses on ensuring that his clients’ financial needs are met, his personal endeavors aim to ensure that today’s youth are getting the support that they need to live fulfilling and healthy lives.
David lives in Reisterstown with his wife and two kids, a son and a daughter. They serve as his biggest motivator, and are the inspiration behind his desires to influence change in the lives of others on a daily basis.
In addition to being a brand new member of the No More Stolen Childhoods board, David also sits on the board of the Montesorri School of Westminster as well as that of the Dyslexia Tutoring Program. These leadership positions within his community have allowed him to directly impact the lives of our future’s promising young leaders.
David was first introduced to No More Stolen Childhoods through his pursuit of child-related non-profits. Even though he is new to the organization, David is already impressed by the team that he is joining and feels empowered by everyone’s shared motivation of child protection. He is also excited by the prospect of offering an additional business-focused lens that will help NMSC market and expand its reach as it pushes forward with its mission.
When I asked David if he has a favorite book or film whose message resonates with him, he couldn’t pick just one. “I think you can find meaning in anything,” he says, and clearly he has. No More Stolen Childhoods looks forward to the work and dedication that David has to offer the organization in his quest to restore meaning to children impacted by abuse.
