NEWARK — Worcester County Education Foundation has announced the appointment of Olivia Momme as its new Manager of Operations & Community Relations. The Worcester County Education Foundation was established in 2013 to provide a perpetual funding resource that can be used to assure that every student has equal access to a world-class education, enabling them to function in today’s digital environment and to compete in a new, emerging job market.
As manager, Momme will help the foundation grow and expand its engagement within the community. “I am beyond grateful to be given this opportunity to give back to the community and to do my part to bolster the educational achievement of ALL Worcester County Public School students through the effective use of innovation, relationships, and resources,” Momme said.
She is especially interested in working with the schools to see where the foundation can make the biggest impact for students, as well as help them get the resources they desperately need.
“We are so excited that Olivia has joined the Worcester County Education Foundation,” said Worcester County Public School’s Assistant Superintendent, Annette Wallace. “She brings a skill set that will usher our foundation to new levels of philanthropic giving and community connections.”
Over the last year, WCEF funded close to $50,000 to aid the Worcester County Board of Education. These funds provided the financial support needed to purchase 550 laptop cases for the incoming freshman class, 78 iPads for teachers, plus 90 mobile hotspots and their contracts to bring internet into the homes of students who cannot afford the service. The WCEF also awarded 11 Teacher Grants, which helped teachers develop innovative ways to engage their students.
