Fred Donnegan joined the Board shortly after enrolling as a student eight years ago. Irish on both sides of his family, he found a passion for German through his coach, who was the German teacher in high school. After working with that teacher to institute a one-month exchange program with a school in Germany, Fred took part in a one-year program in Frankfurt am Main. He later returned to the US to study International Business and German Literature. Currently he and his two children attend classes at GLSW.

Klaus Sonnenleiter has served on the board since 2009 as a member of the website and finance committees. Klaus runs a fine art photography business called PrintedArt. After growing up near Nürnberg, he worked as a technology journalist in Germany, moved to the US while working for Focus Magazin in 1995 and then worked in software development for Micromuse and IBM. His daughter joined the German Language School in 2008 and has made great progress in her German language skills since then.
