About our Honorees:

Terry McCallum

Terry’s decades of volunteer work in support of Conejo Valley schools spans decades. First taking the plunge when his daughter’s 4th grade Acacia Elementary class needed lighting and sound help for their performance of “The Music Man,” Terry — who obtained a degree in electrical engineering from California State University, Los Angeles — stepped in to create the lighting and wireless mics for their show.

After graduating from college with his degree, Terry worked for Bunker Ramo for 26 years in various roles including field engineer, program manager and director of marketing.

In 1995, Terry retired, but showed no signs of slowing down. At the time, he was also president of the TOHS band boosters and led a group called TEMPO — made up of all the music boosters in the Conejo. He led the effort to get the TOHS band in the Rose Parade in 1999 and marched in the parade with the band. During this time, he also worked with district administrators who were in the process of installing new computers and was brought on as a district technology consultant for 20 years.

And, most notably, Terry is the founding president of the Conejo Schools Foundation. Not long after its creation under his guidance and steady hand, the Foundation would go on to produce its first All District Music Festival — an event that is now in its 15th year.

Terry and his wife — a Westlake Elementary teacher — have two grown children and three granddaughters, and enjoy spending time together as a family. He currently guides ConejoTV as its executive director. Terry is a true example of the impact and difference one person can make in a community.

Kenrose Kitchen Table Foundation

The Kenrose Kitchen Table Foundation is a private family foundation formed in 2005 by the J.D. Power Family.  J. David Power III and his wife Julie co-founded J.D. Power and Associates in 1968 and grew the company to become one of the most recognized global marketing consumer research firms.  The foundation was named after the family’s kitchen table from their original home on Kenrose Circle in southern California, which served as the original headquarters for the business and center of family life. The Kenrose Kitchen Table Foundation honors the values of entrepreneurship, integrity and impact with a focus on education, disability rights, mental health, and medical research. Additionally, the foundation is set to help build the first National Coast Guard Museum in New London, Connecticut.  

Since 2007, the Kenrose Kitchen Table Foundation has been a longtime supporter of the Conejo Schools Foundation and the school district.  Julie Power was an ardent supporter of local education issues since the family arrived into the school district in 1975. The Power children were all educated in the Conejo Unified School District and remain active. The incredible generosity and commuinity involvement of the Kenrose Kitchen Table Foundation through their support of Parents Making A Difference Program and Conference, BreakThrough Student Assistance Program, Social and Emotional Learning initiatives, STEM programs, the arts, and teacher support has made a lasting impact on the Conejo Valley Unified School District. Jonathan Power is a current member of the Board of Directors of the Conejo Schools Foundation and Jamey Power served on the advisory board for several years.
