Queen Victoria and Guy Selmore were the motivators behind Selmore Foundation, its purpose, and its goals.  The Selmore's believed strongly in education. Guy was a railroad worker, while Queen Victoria stayed with the children. They taught their children that as each received their degree, they were to work to help the next. All received professional degrees and among them were  a nurse,  two psychologist, educators and other professionals. Each had children, who would be the grandchildren... among them are corporate executives, lawyers, educators, and career military, and other professionals, some now retired..  Their children who are the great grandchildren... currently work as airline executives, government specialist, airline pilots, and Bio Medical Engineers. 

That is the guiding force behind our continued interest in Education and Training, providing scholarships, and other philanthropic efforts. That is Selmore Foundation.



We are in the business of providing subject expertise to organizations with deliverables that promote performance Excellence.  Utilizing a methodology driven by  the client's principles and values, we provide learning initiatives that enable employee growth and development, as well as support the achievement  of organizational goals.
