73 11/19/14 AFFIDAVIT OF ALEX ALDRICH 1. My name is Alex Aldrich. I am 45 years old and have been married for 20 years. My address is 777 Clover Lane, Morningside Heights, NY. I have lived in Morningside Heights my entire life and have two children who attend Morningside Heights High School. My spouse and I own and operate a successful equestrian center on the outskirts of town, complete with an indoor arena, where the school district’s equestrian teams are based. I think it’s important to give back to our community, which I do in many ways. 2. Given rising costs and attempts to limit property tax increases, our Morningside Heights Central School District adopted, like many, a budget for 2013-2014 that eliminated numerous athletic programs, including the equestrian teams and clubs. In response, a group of local business owners, including me, and led by Peyton Pearson, the owner of Pearson Precision Corporation, created the Morningside Heights Booster Club, a not-for-profit, tax exempt corporation under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. 3. Pursuant to our by-laws, the Club was to be run by a three-member Board of Directors, consisting of a President, a Vice President, and a Secretary. On May 15, 2013, we elected Peyton Pearson as the Club President. I was elected Vice President, and Fran Farley was elected Secretary. 4. The first meeting of the Booster Club’s Board of Directors was held on June 1, 2013, at the offices of Pearson Precision. Since we were hopeful that the Club would raise enough money to restore funding for all of the eliminated extracurricular activities in the District, we decided that we needed to hire a Treasurer to keep track of donations to the Club and to ensure that those funds were spent appropriately. 5. Peyton Pearson recommended that the Booster Club hire Casey Cheatham, Pearson Precision’s Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), as our Treasurer. Given what I personally knew about Casey Cheatham, I had my doubts about his/her honesty, based upon what his/her former spouse had said about him/her being a compulsive gambler. However, Peyton persuaded me that despite some problems a few years earlier, Casey would never cheat or steal, and we unanimously voted to hire Casey Cheatham for an annual stipend of $12,000.00. We created a

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
