Schott Foundation Adds New Members to its Board of Directors

It’s official! The Schott Foundation has announced their new Directors. I am honored to join the Schott Foundation Board of Directors and get to work. Honestly, it’s been a dream of mine to serve in a leadership role for the Schott Foundation. Here is the press release:

The Schott Foundation for Public Education is pleased to announce six new members elected to its Board of Directors. “Our country is at an important intersection where racial equity is central to our ability to challenge present conditions and create pathways to a more resilient future, said Carolina Espinal, Schott Board Chair. “On behalf of the Board, I am honored to welcome these immensely talented leaders to join Schott in advancing social justice through a movement for public education that provides all students – and communities – an opportunity to learn and thrive.”

“These diverse leaders are deeply committed to Schott’s mission and bring a wide range of invaluable expertise and experience to our team,” said John H. Jackson, President & CEO.

I am really excited about the potential impacts of the philanthropic work that the Schott Foundation plans to undertake in the next three years. I have often said that the Schott Foundation really is the national model for serving as a bridge between philanthropic partners and advocates to build movements to provide all students an opportunity to learn.

I am always willing to be a voice for good ideas from community stakeholders and committed to being a tenacious voice for equity in all of the Boards that I serve on— just ask Kate Walsh at NCTQ about my vigorous discussion with her recently.
