TOA Vice President Named John T. Gorman Foundation Fellow

 

Louise Marsden, TOA’s Vice President for Family and Early Childhood Education, was one of the 10 initial class of fellows.

PORTLAND (February 2015) The John T. Gorman Foundation announced its first class of the John T. Gorman Fellowship this month. The Fellowship is a new leadership program in Maine for nonprofit and public sector professionals aimed at helping participants become more focused on results and build the vision, confidence and competence required to advance change and improve the lives of vulnerable people in Maine.  Louise Marsden, TOA’s Vice President for Family and Early Childhood Education, was one of the 10 initial class of fellows.

“We are excited about the potential of this new Fellowship to be a major catalyst for advancing the John T. Gorman Foundation’s mission. We believe it will be a unique and valuable addition to the current array of leadership development efforts available in Maine,” said Shawn O. Gorman, Chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

The 10 fellows come from across the state and range widely in terms of interests, experiences and skills. Each is devoted to issues related to the Foundation’s mission and investment priorities: improving educational achievement for young children, helping older youth successfully transition to adulthood, helping struggling parents to support their families and enabling more low-income seniors to remain in their homes as long as possible.
