I’ve been doing a lot of reading and writing to prepare for a new CEO at the Community Foundation of Lorain County when I retire at the end of the year. The research is very nostalgic, a little cathartic and just plain fun. A name that has come up often in the early history of the Foundation is Jim Doughman. Jim was the Director of Public Relations at Nordson Corporation and was, in many cases, the community face of Nordson. Jim touched virtually every nonprofit in the County and had his finger on the pulse of most every capital campaign, initiative, and project. Jim could make things happen because he was trusted, trusted by Evan Nord, Eric Nord, and Jeptha Carrell and trusted by those with whom he worked.
