For Bob and Jean Sturtz, they understand the sacrifice, hard work and belief it takes to make a community great.  This is just a small sampling of the values that are at the center of their lifetime of impactful philanthropy.  They grew up in Lewis County, enjoyed the early years of married life in St. Lawrence County, before finally raising their family and settling in Jefferson County.  On this podcast, Bob and Jean share their reasons for giving, how the North Country has evolved, professional moves and successes, and where their values for giving came from.
