Daryl Dennis

Vice Chairman

Richard Matzinger

Treasurer

I am proud to be one of the founding members and Treasurer of The Hatters’ Foundation, a 501c3 foundation which began in May 2015, derived from members on the School Governance Council for Danbury High School of which I have been a member since 2013.  I am a lifelong resident and graduate of DHS.  My wife and I have two teenage sons who are currently in Danbury Public Schools.  My professional career of accounting/finance includes working for Green Chimneys, The News-Times, Pitney Bowes, GE Capital and consulting with PepsiCo.  Working with nonprofit organizations/companies provides me initiative to volunteer and lend a voice. I am the Treasurer and Finance Chairman of Board of Directors of Community Action Agency of Western Connecticut.  I currently am President of the DHS PTO and Co-President of City-Wide PTO. 
I am passionate about helping improve lives and strengthen communities. I enjoy being involved with the education system of Danbury.  As a parent, I feel it is important to be closer to the action and work to keep parents educated with open communication sharing district wide information, various fundraisers and how the money raised can help our children directly.  I look forward to the future success of The Hatters’ Foundation.
