Ronald and Charleen Crean raised two sons, both of whom are teachers. They were
always dedicated to the education of young people and found it important to support
teachers everywhere. This fund will be used to support science teachers via attendance
at the annual ISTA Conference. This aligns with the ISTA mission to provide professional
support to Illinois teachers so they may provide excellence in science education to Illinois
