New & Noteworthy...
April 15, 2015 was an exciting day for the Stone Foundation and I am proud to include all of our Stone Grantees in it as we celebrate the great work that they do and can be done. Our Executive Director, Tony Smith, was appointed State Superintendent of Education in Illinois. On behalf of the Stone board, I want to congratulate him and offer our support as he takes on this great challenge and opportunity.
Tony’s unique leadership is an asset to all of us, and we will continue to be partners in an interconnected community for a long time to come. In the near future, the Stone Foundation will add a new asset to our work with a new Executive Director. We currently have been in discussions with a strong candidate, and expect to be able to make an announcement about our new leader shortly. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, Cristina, Brian or Jeff over the next few weeks.
I am truly excited about this tremendous opportunity and look forward to growing and supporting the work of our Stone Grantees.
