SFS Welcomes New Board Chair
Outgoing Board of Trustees Chair Ellen Fey welcomes incoming Board Chair Anne Hipskind Roberts.
It is my great pleasure to welcome Anne Hipskind Roberts as the SFS Board of Trustees Chair, effective February 2018. Anne was appointed as incoming Board Chair last spring; however, her start was delayed until February 2018, when she (and her family) returned from their six month sabbatical. Welcome back to Anne, Tim, and their sons, Felix (2nd grade) and Simon (Kindergarten)!
Since joining SFS in 2013, Anne has served a variety of volunteer roles at SFS, including co-chair of the Diversity Committee. Professionally, she has worked in the fields of community development and education since 1995. Her experience as a Restorative Practices Coach and her passion for empowering young people to be agents of change in their communities is reflected in her inclusive, strategic, and thoughtful leadership style.
It has been my honor to serve on the Board since 2010 and, for the past three years, as Board Chair. As SFS leans into and launches its visionary Strategic Plan: Living Our Humanitarian Promise, I cannot imagine a more capable and committed individual than Anne to lead the Board in its implementation. I look forward to working with Anne and Jeanie Chang, Board Vice Chair, and to supporting a successful leadership transition as I complete the final months of my term.
