Scottdale Early Learning is a non-profit that has been around for 41 years now, offering education to children of lower brackets of income in the community. Students’ ages range from six-week old infants to five years olds.
Anita Douglas was named the new director of development. She graduated from Kennesaw State University, and is currently pursuing her Masters Degree in Public Administration from the university as well.
“Anita has already been helping Scottdale Early Learning remotely with grant-writing assistance for about two years, and she brings a wealth of fundraising experience from both her volunteer and professional work with the National Coalition of Black Women, Hurt2Heal, Hosea Helps, FlyChicks and Feed My Lambs,” Scottdale Early Learning Executive Director Maryum Lewis Gibson said in a recent press release.
The new board members are:
– Amity Farrar, senior counsel, POWER 10
– Antoinetta McKay, education program manager at Habitat for Humanity and children’s
– Jamee Lawson Nelson, assistant vice president of communication, Wells Fargo
– Daria Shelton, account manager and partnerships, The Networks of 11Alive
With the addition of new people, “the non-profit recently completed a comprehensive strategic plan to direct future growth.”
“Anita and our Board members will identify and invite businesses and individuals with a passion for serving children to learn more about how [Scottdale Early Learning] works in our community,” Gibson said the press release. “We are always seeking new partners to help fund our current programs and to support the new initiatives outlined in our strategic plan.”
