LAKELAND, FL (August 31, 2022) – GiveWell Community Foundation (GWCF) is proud to have several representatives participating in two impactful leadership programs this year. The members of both programs were announced at Polk Vision’s annual event on August 18, 2022.
Lori Martini, GWCF Vice President/Chief Philanthropic Officer, will join the inaugural class of Inside PCPS along with Jason Rodda, President and CEO of Rodda Construction and GWCF board member. Inside PCPS is a new countywide leadership program created through the collaboration of Polk County Public Schools and Polk Vision.
The inaugural class of Inside PCPS was assembled from Leadership Polk graduates with a demonstrated commitment to improving educational outcomes in our community.
