Four new members were recently elected to the board of directors at Talbot Mentors. They include Dr. Kelly Griffith, Dr. Lois McCoy, Tripper Showell and David Willse. “We are pleased to welcome this committed group of community leaders to our Board,” said Irene Schmidt, outgoing President of the Board of Directors. “Each of them brings diverse talents and experience as well as passion and commitment to our mission.”
Leaving the board are Kerry Foxwell, Martha Horner, Irene Schmidt, Peter Zukoski and Marie U’Ren. Natalie Costanzo, Executive Director of Talbot Mentors said, “These board members have been tireless ambassadors for Talbot Mentors and the youth of Talbot County. Talbot Mentors, and in particular the mentors and mentees in the program have benefitted immensely from their time and talent as they led Talbot Mentors on an exciting journey in the last couple of years. This journey has resulted in a doubling of youth paired with mentors, and an increase in programming to ensure all young people in Talbot County have the opportunity to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives.”
Assuming the leadership role of board president is Bill Brashares who has served on the board for four years and who will follow Irene Schmidt. Bill has been a mentor and Board Member with Talbot Mentors for 15 years, and has mentored 3 boys in this time.
