New trustees elected to 4C for Children Board
May 11, 2017
Three new members were elected to 4C for Children's Board of Trustees at the agency's May 8 board meeting. They join 20 continuing members of the board who are helping further 4C's efforts to support the adults who care for young children and to advocate for public support for quality early education and care for all children.
"We are pleased to welcome these trustees who share a passion for helping children in our region get the best possible start in life," said Vanessa Freytag, president/CEO of 4C. "Each of these new board members has a wealth of knowledge to complement our work and I look forward to working with them to help the children in our community succeed."
New trustees to the 4C board are:
Alison Morris, senior director of finance at the E.W. Scripps Company, is a resident of Fort Thomas, Ky. Alison has most recently served on the board of the Mt. Washington School Foundation. With two young boys, she's experienced firsthand the importance of early childhood education and its impact on the lives of children. She's thrilled to be part of an agency that advocates for children and focuses on the whole child, and helps children reach their full potential. This, she believes, will help communities become stronger and break the cycle of poverty.
Ryan Salzman, assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice at Northern Kentucky University, is a resident of Bellevue, Ky. He has been a member of the 4C Northern Kentucky Advisory board since 2015 and is currently the advisory board chair. He recently represented 4C at the Child Care Aware Public Policy Symposium in Washington, D.C. Ryan is excited to bring his experience as an educator, policy maker and early childhood advocate to help advance 4C's mission.
Jill Warman, vice president and team leader at U.S. Bank, is a resident of Western Hills, Ohio. She has actively served on the board of Southwest Ohio Association for Financial Professionals and volunteered with the St. Ursula Academy Parent Board and the United Way Leadership Giving Event at U.S. Bank. She appreciates 4C's focus on improving the lives of children and is eager to share her skills in business, philanthropy, event planning and fundraising.
