Kristen McDonald, Greater Midland President/CEO, was appointed by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder to the statewide Early Childhood Investment Corporation.
Created in 2005, the 15-member board is the state's center for information and investment in early childhood to ensure Michigan's children are safe, healthy and eager to learn when they enter the school system.
“All of our children deserve the highest quality early education. I am very excited to help ensure that our smallest learners are prepared to succeed in kindergarten and beyond,” said McDonald.
McDonald has been in her current role with Greater Midland since August 2016. Prior to this position she was Vice President of Program and Policy for The Skillman Foundation, a Detroit nonprofit organization focused on improving the lives of children. She has made it her mission to improve outcomes for children and ensure students graduate from high school ready for college, career, and life.
At Greater Midland, McDonald works with a team of dedicated professionals to ensure every Midland resident is healthy, stable and thriving.
