Say Yes Guilford is pleased to welcome Amanda Rosemann as Senior Vice President of Development and Community Relations. Rosemann will work closely with Guilford County Schools and Say Yes Guilford volunteers to implement a support services plan for 13 pilot schools in the 2019-20 academic year and develop a plan to grow services through the system.
Rosemann has spent her career in the non-profit sector working to better education outcomes for students and families in the Triad. Most recently, she served as the Senior Director of Engagement at United Way of Forsyth County where she oversaw the organizations community relations, engagement efforts, special events, affinity group development and fundraising efforts. “I am excited to join with Say Yes team as their mission of preparing students for success in college, career and life aligns perfectly with my passion for improving lives, equity, and access for individuals via education,” says Rosemann.
By leveraging partnerships, collaborations and new and existing funding, Say Yes Guilford is working to address the academic and non-academic challenges students face. The team is currently working in 13 schools to advance two GCS priorities: 3rd grade literacy and increasing the number of students graduating career or college-ready. The pilot schools are: Foust Elementary, Wiley Elementary, Jackson Middle and Smith High School; Sedalia Elementary, McLeansville Elementary, Eastern Middle and Eastern High School; and Fairview Elementary, Northwood Elementary, Ferndale Middle, High Point Central and High Point Andrews High School.
