Raising the necessary funds to help children with Down syndrome is a passion for Aaron Lupuloff. And in early May, Lupuloff, senior executive director with the Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation, expressed his admiration for David Saville as new inductees were brought into the Gwinnett County Public Schools Hall of Fame. One of the most inspiring speeches at this induction was held by Saville, who as a Clemson graduate, also has Down syndrome. When speaking of his condition and past induction into the Gwinnett County Public Schools Hall of Fame, Saville says that life’s only real disability is a “bad attitude.”
Lupuloff praised Saville, a graduate of ClemsonLIFE, which is a program at the prestigious college that prepares students with intellectual disabilities for a life of independence and employment. Saville has also been recipient of many awards, including the Walter Camp American Hero Award.
In a message to the inductees, Aaron Lupuloff said that Saville brings a number of great qualities to his peers and adults that reside in Peachtree Corners and Norcross. The qualities Lupuloff mentioned included honor, integrity, love and selflessness. Lupuloff says David is special in that he has a huge desire to work hard and help others.
Gwinnett County Schools Foundation’s inclusion of David Saville in its Hall of Fame is a great example of the foundation’s schools to improve on financial support, increase in attendance and hometown pride. That hometown pride helped make this year’s event a big success, so big in fact, people had to be turned away.
Lupuloff stepping into the senior executive director position has saved Gwinnett from challenges it would have incurred with a different candidate. Why? Lupuloff champions the schools leadership in diversity, along with academics and athleticism. Students get long lasting impressions from attending the school and participating in some of the school’s programs.
Lupuloff is a graduate of the University of Alabama. His more than two decades of management experience and expertise as a supervisor comes from stents with Bear Stearns/JP Morgan and Fifth Third Street Bank Securities. Lupuloff has been a leader in the financial services industry since 1982.
