08 Feb Prince named foundation director
The Conway Public Schools Foundation recently announced the hiring of its first executive director, Aimee Reynolds Prince.
“After completing a comprehensive search, the board of directors unanimously selected Aimee to fill this inaugural post. Her experience and passion for Conway Public Schools made her a natural fit,” said Drew Spurgers, president of the CPSF board.
Prince most recently served as interim executive director of the United Way of Central Arkansas. Previously, she served in development roles at both United Way and Bethlehem House, where she worked with donors, foundations and churches to secure funding for programs and operations.
“She has extensive experience in the non-profit space, particularly in resource development, but even more valuable, she is closely connected to the district and the community,” added Spurgers. “We’re excited to see Aimee get involved in our schools, and in our mission of helping teachers help students.”
Prince is active in the community, serving on the Conway Regional Health Foundation Board of Directors, Conway Regional Women’s Council, City of Conway’s Homeless Task Force and Conway Noon Rotary, where she serves as president.
In the inaugural role, Prince will work with the foundation’s board of directors to develop a strategic work plan focusing on growing the organization’s endowment, developing new programs and increasing awareness of the foundation’s work.
“Since its inception, the foundation has experienced tremendous growth. It’s a testament to the quality of Conway Public Schools, and of the support this community provides. The addition of an executive director will help us take the next step to advance our work of helping teachers help students,” said Spurgers
The Conway Public Schools Foundation was founded in 2007. The foundation partners with teachers to enrich the learning environment for students by funding innovative programs and resources that stimulate creativity promote excellence and enable life-long learning.
