MR. CHASE SIZEMORE, BBA, JD, LLM
Chase Sizemore is the founder of the Teach Them To Fish Foundation and Director of the Board of Trustees. Mr. Sizemore scouts for prospective sites to build schools in rural Cambodia and Uganda that meet the foundation’s criteria for capital investment, negotiates enforceable foreign contracts, conducts due diligence, attends ground-breaking ceremonies, overseas the integrity of the construction process, and attends opening ceremonies.
Mr. Sizemore authored the foundation’s first in a series of books, The Road To Kitgum. The Road To Kitgum is an awe-inspiring story about the foundation’s determination not to change the world but to do its share to alleviate some of the unimaginable human sufferings in the developing world by building schools in rural Cambodia and Uganda while addressing the importance of educating girls.
The book chronicles the foundation’s journey from its inception in 2006 to its first primary school for 380 impoverished children in Battambang Province, Cambodia, to Quang-Tri Province, Vietnam, in search of the parents of three young boys who stepped on an American war-era landmine and died and continues through to the foundation’s building its first two primary schools deep in the bush on the East African Plateau in Uganda. The book concludes with an electrifying once-in-a-lifetime encounter when a grade school student passes a desperate mother’s note to Mr. Sizemore and ignites an unimaginable chain of events that draws him into the dangerous domain of the Lord’s Resistance Army and their refugee camp spies in Kitgum. Mr. Sizemore thwarts a plot to kidnap him by jumping out of a window and fleeing to safety. He returns to the village and reports his failed rescue attempt to the child soldier’s mother.
Mr. Sizemore is also active in serving his local community. He is a Georgetown University AAP Interviewer for undergraduate and law school admissions, Georgetown Scholarship Chair, lifetime E Street Loyalty Society member, Hogan Society member, Blue & Gray member, a past candidate for the Georgetown University Alumni Association’s Board of Governors, and a member of the Georgetown Club of Washington, D.C. Mr. Sizemore is also a member of the Dartmouth Family Leadership & Fundraising Committee and the Columbia University in New York 1754 Society.
