It is with joy I can announce we have a fresh start to our board for 2023. This is going to be a year full of transformation and growth for our leadership organization and for the school in Côte d’Ivoire. We launch into the new year with some new blood joining the team and some role changes. The powerhouse of a woman in Katlyn Boucher was voted in as Clerk and Treasurer. And it is delightful to share we will see a fresh face take the driver seat for our social media and marketing in Dina Fallenius as she was voted in as Marketing Director. Dina will travel to Côte d’Ivoire this spring to share live with all of us the progress of the campus. Elizabeth Dickson-Stevenson has done a phenomenal job in the clerk position and is now venturing into a new role as Major Donor Director to put substantial focus on supporting the growth we envision. Alison Marlow Reese will remain as Grants Director and will ensure that we keep a steady progress in this domain.
The newly elected board want to thank Tuija and Thomas for their devotion to our organization over these past years as they are now stepping down from the board. We will shortly introduce you to Katlyn and Dina that are bringing so much energy, depth and drive that I am confident to say we are in for a fun year together!
