In April, Rachel Weingartner started as the foundation’s executive director. She replaced Stephanie Maxwell, who held the position from 2015 to this March.
Foundation Board President Charles Smith said selecting Maxwell’s successor was an important decision because of the positive momentum she created during her tenure. He believes he found the right candidate in Weingartner.
“Rachel was the perfect fit for us,” Smith said. “In addition to her nonprofit and development experience, it was clear that Rachel had the drive and commitment to help take us to the next level.”
