EAST Initiative would like to welcome Dr. Angela Kremers as their new Senior Director of Corporate Strategy. Through Dr. Kremers’ previous work with the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation as their Senior Associate for Education, she gained national attention in educational philanthropy by increasing support and collaboration for improvement in higher education college completion work and K-12 system reform. Dr. Kremers was nominated by Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe in 2011 to serve on the prestigious National Assessment Governing Board.

EAST’s Board of Directors Chairperson Dominik Mjartan had the following to say of Dr. Kremers’ decision to join the EAST staff full-time: “Dr. Kremers’ expertise in education and learning makes her uniquely qualified to build on EAST’s success in serving thousands of students. EAST’s impact on students has attracted top talent like Angela and has positioned EAST to grow and implement its strategic priorities.”

“Dr. Kremers is a powerful voice for EAST’s mission, and I believe that her joining our full- time staff will help EAST reach out to new partners and possibilities that will ultimately empower EAST Students and Facilitators to more easily reach their goals.” said EAST President & CEO Matt Dozier.

Dr. Kremers is a nationally recognized speaker on education-reform issues as well as a published author on the subject. Kremers’ article, “Use of Layering for Effective Partnership Building: Leveraging Positive Impact in Education Philanthropy,” was published November 2011 in The Foundation Review.
