SUISUN CITY - Doyle Wiseman takes pride in being a product of local schools. His success as president of the Wiseman Co. is a testament to what the Fairfield Suisun Unified School District can accomplish, when given the right tools.

For the past six years, the Wiseman Co. has organized a Fourth of July fundraiser for Crescent Elementary School in Suisun City. For the Armijo High School graduate, his participation in the principal for a day program a few years ago was the catalyst to understanding how teachers did their work with limited resources.

By investing in public education, Wiseman says, his company is investing in the community's future.

"I believe that children are the future, and the quality of education in Solano County impacts the people who live here, and the ones who want to live here," said Wiseman, who graduated from the UC Berkeley with a degree in business administration. "We need to help the schools, and that makes for a better community."
