It is with mixed emotions that we say farewell to Dr. Brett Morash, our outgoing director of operations and finance. Brett helped lead the foundation through a period of sustained growth, while ensuring fiscal responsibility and transparency. I valued his insight and passion for our cause—his experience drawn from a 20-year career as an officer in the U.S. Navy, and his post-service academic work.
Brett has been given the opportunity to serve as the executive director of the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty (SHECP), a nonprofit promoting poverty studies programs in undergraduate and professional schools, effective Jan. 15.
While Brett will be missed, we wish him well in his new endeavor. To borrow from the nautical terms he was fond of saying, “Fair winds and following seas, shipmate!”
—Anne Marie Dougherty, Executive Director
