June 17, 2016 Fund Team Post

Welcome, Fellows!

Happy Friday!

Each summer, The Fund team grows with the welcome addition of summer Fellows. Fellows come from near and far and through various programs, and all are immersed in our passionate work to ensure all of Chicago’s children receive a great public education.

Over the years, we’ve come to rely on our Fellows to support a number of projects. Last year, our Fellows interviewed principals and wrote most of the news posts you’ve enjoyed this year. We remain grateful for all Kristen and Joe did to help elevate principal voice in Chicago and to tell the positive stories we see in our schools.

Today, we’re excited to introduce you to three of this summer’s Fellows and to tell you a bit more about their work.

Ezgi, Hailey and Trent have joined us through the New Sector Alliance program. Ezgi and Hailey will be interviewing principals throughout the summer to write new news posts for the year ahead and to capture videos of some of Chicago’s top principals. Trent will be supporting a number of initiatives on the development team, as well as shaping improvements to our website. We can’t wait to leverage their talent!

In the coming weeks, we’ll share posts written by our Fellows so you can get to know them better. For now, we hope you join us in welcoming them to The Fund’s team!
