Lynn Lehmann to become Executive Director in October, 2015
Chapel Hill -- The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation announced Lynn Lehmann as the organization’s incoming Executive Director. After an extensive regional search, the PSF Board of Directors appointed Ms. Lehmann to assume this leadership role upon the retirement of Executive Director Kim Hoke on September 30, 2015.
Ms. Lehmann holds a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications. For the past 15 months, she has worked as the PSF Program Manager, where she has managed and implemented several aspects of PSF grant programming and fundraising. Additionally, Ms. Lehmann is a long-time community and school leader, chairing numerous volunteer organizations within the CHCCS system. Among other volunteer roles, she served as PTA President and School Improvement Team Chair for multiple local schools. She also sits on the Board of Directors for Project Graduation of Chapel Hill-Carrboro, Inc., and she is a Past-President of the PSF Board of Directors.
“Lynn’s extensive experience in grant-writing, marketing, event planning and fundraising make her ideal for the position,” said Laura Baxley, Foundation President. “Additionally, Lynn brings a deep knowledge and understanding of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and the Public School Foundation.”
The Public School Foundation is an independent non-profit organization that supports financially and programmatically students and teachers of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. Since its inception in 1984, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation has distributed over $5,000,000 for programs and projects that otherwise would not have received funding. The PSF receives funding from grants and private donations and helps schools with fundraising for special projects through community events such as the Annual Walk for Education, the 5K for Fitness, The Teacher’s First Breakfast and Roses, and, in partnership with the East Chapel Hill Rotary Club, the Teacher’s Supply Store.
