Dear tSB friends and family,
As you know, tSB was sad to say farewell in August to Chiloe Barrera-Cloyd, our wonderful and dedicated Interim Executive Director, who has headed back to school in pursuit of a new career. Chiloe will be missed, especially her energy and dedication to serving the youth in our program. You can read her farewell message here.
As 2017 comes to a close, we will continue to search for the next permanent leader of our organization – one who possesses jut the right blend of leadership, commitment to youth, organizational management, and fundraising prowess to keep tSB thriving for years to come. We’re looking for a leader with that “special sauce” to advance tSB to new heights. It’s a tough challenge, but it’s a labor of love. We are excited to find the person who is just the right fit for our beloved tSB.
Where does that leave tSB in the meantime? Fear not, as we have been working hard to ensure this transition process does not slow down tSB’s work and its mission. To get us through this Fall and into the winter season, we are thrilled to introduce you to our new Interim Executive Director, Lacie West! Lacie comes to us from College Access Now and has been in place since mid-September. To learn about her, please read her bio here. Her leadership skills have already impressed us immensely. From organizing our annual Soiree (November 10th! Tickets available here) to working with staff to plan our 2018 Winter Core Program, Lacie is the right person to provide stability as we continue our search for a permanent ED.
tSB has been working its mission since 1995, fueled by the love and financial support of our community. Your ongoing support is as important as ever during the transition. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or feedback for us – we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The snow will fall soon and we look forward to seeing you on the mountain!
Yours in community,
Mary Cadera & Anthony Auriemma
Board Chair & Co-Chair
