We are excited to announce that the Rhawnhurst Turning Point Board has officially hired two new Co-Directors to lead Turning Point forward with a 2 year staffing plan as our current Director, Cheryl Lafferty, steps down on June 30th. Please join us in welcoming BOTH Rev. Keith McClain and Ms. Kim Hibbs as our new Co-Directors.
Rev. McClain, who is also a co-founder of RTP and former Board Chairperson, will be working primarily in the area of non-profit governance and management, development, grant writing, community relations, and staff mentoring. He brings not only years of experience, but also a deep passion for the mission and vision of RTP. He will serve in this role for the 2016-17 Program Year.
Ms. Kim Hibbs is a long-time core volunteer and former member of our Board of Directors who has a deep and contagious passion for the mission and youth of Turning Point. She will be working primarily in the area of program planning and management, volunteer coordinating and recruitment, fundraising, and seeing to the day to day needs of the center. Ms. Hibbs will also take the coming year to engage in a variety of continuing education opportunities in the area of non-profit management and development, with the express intention of moving into the role of Executive Director of Turning Point in July 2017.
We are blessed and excited to have both Rev. McClain and Ms. Hibbs taking on these staffing roles at Rhawnhurst Turning Point, and we and the Board have the utmost confidence in their abilities to continue and expand the mission and vision of RTP that began over nine years ago.
There will be opportunities for you, our supporters, friends and families of RTP, to get to know both Rev. McClain and Ms. Hibbs better in the coming year through special events, fundraisers, community gatherings, and every day interactions at the Center. We believe that you will be as excited about this plan as we are as a Board of Directors, as we journey forward together to discover all that the future holds for the Turning Point community.
Thank you for your continued support of Rhawnhurst Turning Point – we would be unable to do such amazing programming with 6-12th grade youth without your enthusiastic and ongoing support.
James Mack, Board Chairperson
Cheryl Lafferty, Outgoing Director
