Congratulations to our Executive Director Rhonda Rogers who was recently nominated by Nonprofits First as Nonprofit Executive of the Year through the organization’s Hats Off Nonprofit Awards, which will be held October 1 in West Palm Beach.
Rhonda was recommended for the award by a staff member at our Lake Worth West Resident Planning Group. Rhonda is up for the award along with more than 20 other nonprofit executives across Palm Beach County.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by someone you work with,” Rhonda said. “I’m really grateful.”
Rhonda, who was hired by our organization in April, 2017, said she is most proud of her work in expanding our youth services programs, which includes a summer camp and after-school program for middle school children.
She also started an annual Literacy Luncheon focused on childhood literacy and used the event as a fundraiser for our youth services programs. In addition, she said she has worked hard to honor and support the work of her staff, as well as expand more services to Haitian families moving into our community.
The winner of the award will be announced during the awards event. See the other nominees here.
Good luck Rhonda!
