San Leandro Education Foundation’s Board of Directors have announced that Morgan Mack-Rose has been named Executive Director.
Mack-Rose has been an active supporter of San Leandro’s schools for over a decade.
She will bring dynamic energy, experience and innovations as SLED continues to improve the lives and education of children in the San Leandro Unified School District.
“The Board went through an extensive process to select SLED's first Executive Director,” said Board President Deborah Cox. “We were impressed by the overall quality of applicants and were pleased to ultimately select Morgan. Her demonstrated commitment to San Leandro schools, combined with her professional background in non-profit resource development makes her an excellent fit for SLED. The entire Board is excited to have Morgan serve in this new capacity to help expand SLED's vital role in our community."
Mack-Rose graduated from U.C. Santa Cruz with a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology. She has worked as a grant writer and a financial development consultant for many non-profits in the Bay Area — including the YMCA of the East Bay and Project Inform. Mack-Rose is successful in grant writing, donor development, event planning and volunteer trainings.
She began her role of SLED Executive Director in December.
“The founders and board members of SLED have done a tremendous job over the past five years to bring much needed resources to San Leandro schools,” said Ms. Mack Rose. “I am honored to have the opportunity to build upon that success and lead SLED in engaging our community, working with the SLUSD leadership and partnering with businesses and foundations to fully realize our shared vision for excellent educational opportunities for all of San Leandro's students."
