Gerry Neighbors has been an advocate for children with special needs for the past 14 years working at both the school and school district levels. She enjoys helping to create a solid foundation for children so they can develop into productive, happy adults. She believes there are no bad children, just misguided and misunderstood children. Gerry has a huge heart for youth, especially those facing challenges. Gerry enjoys life most when she is serving others. She is excited to be a part of the Edge program as it provides an amazing platform to help at risk children make good choices both in and out of school.
Gerry graduated with a BA in Business Administration and a minor in Art from California State University, Fullerton. She has been president of a number of non-profit organizations over the past 20 years, helping to elevate their fundraising to over 1.2 million dollars for local schools. Currently, she is President of the Palm Desert High School Foundation and also works in ministry helping families through the most stressful times of their lives. Gerry joined Edge in 2020 and is very excited to bring Edge to our local schools to help children be the best they can be.
