I’m excited to announce the appointment of Sam Yi as the Executive Director and Marie Donaldson as the Operations Director of Supplies for Dreams. They will begin their roles in June 2014 and will be taking over from Nicole Bronnimann and Gabrielle Budzon who have served in the roles of Executive Director and Operations Director for the past two years.
Sam has been an outstanding leader within our organization and currently serves as the Academic Enrichment Director. In this role, she oversaw the operations of three parallel mentoring programs, revised and improved existing curricula, and set forth a dynamic vision for the future of mentoring programs at Supplies for Dreams.
Marie has been the president of the Northwestern University Chapter of Supplies for Dreams for the past two years. She built the foundations of an effective campus organization, expanded the reach of our brand and activities amongst the undergraduate population, and created various events that have brought dozens of Chicago Public Schools students to a college environment.
I have high hopes and expectations for Sam and Marie. I am confident that they will maintain the high standard of excellence our partners and you have come to expect. Although they are sure to face many challenges in the upcoming year, they are well equipped to navigate and overcome them.
Please join me in congratulating Sam and Marie, and thank you for your continued support and advocacy.
Co-founder & President
