PANTRY MANAGER, ROB FORESMAN
Rob was born in Omaha, Nebraska and is the oldest of 15 children and has lived in Nebraska most of his life. He is an avid historian and graduated from Chadron State College in 2011 with a BA in History and obtained his MA in Public History from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2016.
Currently he is enrolled at Liberty University where he is completing his Ph.D. in History with concentration in Social Network and Public History. While much of his volunteer work is in state and local history, Rob is thrilled to join the team at the St. Vincent de Paul Society where he hopes his experience working within community partnerships and higher education lends to further development and success of the SVdP Pantry and upcoming Garden Project.
Rob is married to his wife Katerina and they recently celebrated the birth of their first child, Meghan Maria, earlier this year in April of 2020.Rob's first week was halted by a positive COVID test but our wonderful volunteers kept everything running on their own while he recovered for a few weeks. We thank them all for their dedication and hard work! Glad you are back Rob!
