People: Longtime Gates Staffer Heads To College Board
Stefanie Sanford, one of the few Gates Foundation staffers going back to the Vander Ark era, is heading off from the foundation to the College Board after nearly a decade with Gates.
The College Board sent out the announcement yesterday (here). The Gates Foundation sent out the following comment via email:
“We are excited for Stefanie as she enters this next phase of her career as a member of the College Board’s executive team,” said Allan Golston, President of the US Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “We will miss her as a foundation colleague, but are heartened to know that she will continue to use her tremendous talents, energy, passion and dedication to ensure our country’s youth have the opportunity to earn a quality education and succeed in life.”
Anybody know the impetus behind the move, or what the College Board is aiming to do by adding Sanford, let me know. You can read her official bio here.
