We are delighted to inform you that after a careful search we have selected Angela Hawke as our new Executive Director. Angela officially accepts this role on January 1st, 2017.

Angela joined our organization as a volunteer during the fall of 2016, and began assuming the responsibilities of Executive Director in October. Her contributions to the organization were immediate and significant, and we are confident that Angela’s knowledge, experience, and integrity are a great match for the work, volunteers, staff and students of RCSGO. Together, with our scholarship families and schools, we will continue to advance our mission in the Tennessee Valley and spread the vision of life-changing educational opportunity with more and more deserving families.

Angela is a visionary leader who brings to RCGSO deep experience in civic engagement, family services, and social outreach. During her recent five-year tenure as Executive Director of the CARE Center in Owens Cross Roads, AL, Angela worked with her Board of Directors to establish a management and organizational structure with a clear governance protocol, steward important fundraising relationships, build strong corporate and community partnerships, created community based programs, and balanced community need with strategic growth and resources.

A native of the greater Detroit area, Angela’s career has spanned the nonprofit, healthcare, and media sectors. She holds a degree in Healthcare Administration from Baker College. Serving on numerous boards and committees, Angela has supporting roles for the betterment of children across north Alabama including HEALS Clinic, Graces of Gurley, & Huntsville High Panther Soccer.

We look forward to engaging her in the busy summer scholarship award season where she will have an excellent opportunity to see our mission come alive as local families apply for and receive scholarships to great educational institutions right here in our community.
