The Joan M. Vande Castle Scholarship Fund, was developed in 2016 to honor the Home Builders Association of Fond du Lac & Dodge Counties Executive Officer of 30 years, Joan M. Vande Castle. Joan made it her passion and dedicated her life to growing our Association. She began bringing those in the industry together in the basement of her home, and later to our Rolling Meadows Drive building where we currently reside today. Joan received numerous awards during her tenure, as she lead a nationwide and statewide Executive Officer's Council. In her retirement, Joan still volunteers at the Association office whenever she is needed. The Home Builders Association of Fond du Lac & Dodge Counties would not be where it is today had it not been for Joan. The Joan M. Vande Castle Scholarship was created to honor her for all of her efforts and achievements as our Executive Officer.
