October 2014 – New Acting Executive Director – Michelle Kay
The beginning of October was quite busy for SchoolBOX. On the first weekend, the SchoolBOX board members joined the entire SchoolBOX community at the 9th annual Latin Fiesta. The annual board meeting took place the very next day with a full day session outlining the plan for 2015 and strategic plans for the future.
During the board meeting, Sarah Kerr passed the ‘Executive Director hat’ to Michelle Kay. Michelle has most recently had the role of Finance Manager for SchoolBOX. She was actually the organization’s first international volunteer in Nicaragua. Her passion for the children of Nicaragua, along with her leadership abilities made her a natural choice to take over for Sarah during her maternity leave.
The entire SchoolBOX leadership team of Ronald Chavarria (Nicaraguan Operations Director) and Jon Tam (Marketing & Business Development Director) are excited to help Michelle lead the organization towards a successful 2015 year.
SchoolBOX will continue ‘Making Education Possible’ for thousands of children in Nicaragua next year with the support of donors and volunteers around the world.
Sarah Kerr officially passed over the Executive Director hat to Michelle Kay, in a light hearted ceremony at the beginning of October.
