We Value Your Input – Strategic Planning Survey

Dear Highground Contributors and Volunteers,

I hope this message finds you well!  I would like to introduce myself, as I was hired last month as The Highground’s Executive Director. I am deeply honored to continue the work of past Executive Directors to continue growing and developing the amazing mission of this incredible organization.

As you may know, The Highground is planning a major transformation of our 155-acre, 35-year-old campus to accommodate doubling our 225,000 annual visitors with a proposed $4M construction project and capital campaign.

The expansion is necessary to:

  • Accommodate the huge increase in growth of providing services for veterans.
  • Help heal several generations of returning soldiers and families.
  • Educate visitors regarding the sacrifice and service of military service men and women.
  • Continue honoring our country’s fallen heroes.

As the capital campaign process begins ramping up this spring, The Highground Board of Directors will complete a strategic plan process to outline goals and objectives that are focused on fulfilling the vision of the organization for the next five years and beyond. 

We need your help! Please complete this seven-minute survey before April 29th, to help provide the information needed to assist the board of directors in our strategic planning process.

My best to you and yours,




Chris Pettis,
Executive Director
