April 2018 – Jon Tam becomes Acting Executive Director
Jon Tam took on the role of Acting Executive Director this week, as Sarah Kerr left on parental leave. Jon first got involved with SchoolBOX as a volunteer in Nicaragua. He was struck by the beauty and resilience of the Nicaraguan people and the power of education to defeat poverty. In 2010, Jon left his business career to join the SchoolBOX team full time, an inspiring story that earned him a CTV Amazing Person Award. Jon has been a gift to SchoolBOX, sharing his communication, marketing and business development expertise with our growing organization.
After taking a year off to travel the world, Jon settled back in Ottawa and jumped into his new role as Acting Executive Director at SchoolBOX! We are happy to have Jon back. We know that SchoolBOX is in good hands under his leadership as we continue to ‘Make Education Possible’ in Nicaragua and in Canada.
