We Celebrate With Our Very Own: Sheri Flanigan-Vazquez!
Sheri, Our C.O.O., Completes Business Management Course for Non-Profit Leaders

In a testament to her commitment to continuous growth and leadership excellence, Sheri, our esteemed Chief Operating Officer (C.O.O.), has recently completed the highly acclaimed “Business Management for Non-Profit Leaders” course at Washington University in St. Louis Olin Business School.

This milestone achievement marks a significant step forward for both Sheri personally and our organization as a whole. Equipped with newfound knowledge and insights gleaned from the rigorous curriculum, Sheri is poised to lead us to even greater heights of success and impact in the non-profit sector.

The course, renowned for its comprehensive approach to addressing the unique challenges and opportunities faced by non-profit organizations, covered a wide array of topics including strategic planning, financial management, and effective leadership practices.

One of the highlights of Sheri’s journey was the opportunity to network and collaborate with industry leaders. One in particular that we want to recognize is Randy Weller, Senior Vice President of Citi Community Relations. Citi’s generous sponsorship of Sheri’s participation underscores their commitment to supporting leadership development within the non-profit community.

As we celebrate Sheri’s accomplishment, we also recognize the broader significance of investing in leadership development within the non-profit sector. By empowering our leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate today’s complex landscape, we are better equipped to drive meaningful change and create a brighter future for all.

Join us in congratulating Sheri on this remarkable achievement and in wishing her continued success on her journey of leadership and learning. Together, we are poised to make a lasting impact on the world.
