Dawson joins La Jolla Historical Society board

Doug Dawson recently was elected to a three-year term on the board of the La Jolla Historical Society.

A business leader, banker, volunteer, youth sports coach and executive director of the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation, he is a father of five who in 1993 was named Outstanding Development Volunteer by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

“I have been watching the La Jolla Historical Society closely for many years now and have been impressed with its efforts to become a more vibrant and relevant organization for our community, particularly in reaching out to younger people,” Dawson said.
