The St. Helena Public Schools Foundation (SHPSF) and its supporting organization, the St. Helena Public Schools Foundation Endowment Trust, community nonprofits that have supported educators and students at St. Helena’s four public schools for more than three decades, have announced the elevation of current board directors to leadership posts.

Outgoing SHPSF board president Dorothy Mondavi, who served as president for the last three years and as a board director for more than two decades, has been succeeded as president by Cecilia Raffo, another long-serving director and past treasurer. Mondavi will continue her service to the SHPSF as a board director.

Board director Becky Boult has accepted the treasurer position on an interim basis and has been elevated to chair the organization’s Grant Committee, previously led by Dorothy Mondavi.

Kris Hoffmeister continues in her current role as secretary, as does Vice President Dianne Maher. Joel Toller continues as Endowment Trust Liaison.

The SHPSF designates a board director to serve as liaison between the organization and the administrators, educators, students and parents of each public school.

The School Liaison designees for the 2016/17 school year are:

St. Helena Primary School and St. Helena Elementary School: Kerri Beeker

Robert Louis Stevenson Middle School: Dianne Maher

St. Helena High School: Cecilia Raffo

The mission of the SHPSF is achieved through its grant program, funding excellence, innovation and advancement for educators and students at St. Helena’s four public schools. Grant information, including application guidelines, forms and submission dates, can be found on the organization’s website, shpsf.org.
