Dear FIRST Chesapeake Family, 
 
As most of you know, Kristin Clemons has stepped down as our Director of Programs. Kristin wanted everyone know that she appreciated the kind words, texts, and phone calls last week, and that she and her family are happy, healthy and whole. We wish her the best and hope that she will have some time to enjoy some well-earned rest and relaxation.
 
Thank you for your patience as we work through this transition. For the time being, we will be splitting the Director of Programs duties between existing key staff. We will be posting these duties, in addition to our regular responsibilities, on the FIRST Chesapeake staff webpage later this week. We will continue to communicate with our teams and volunteers via Constant Contact emails, the FIRST Chesapeake Facebook page, and our website. Individual staff are also happy to answer questions via phone, email, or text. 
 
Beginning today, please feel free to reach out to the following contacts:
 
  • FTC and FRC Team questions. Ron Therrien, Assistant Director of Programs. Phone 443.996.7000.
  • FTC and FRC Volunteer questions. Sarah Gagnon, Assistant Director of Volunteer and Community Outreach. Phone 804.380.5165.
  • FTC and FRC Event logistics. Glen Davis, Logistics Manager. Phone 804.928.3506.
  • FTC and FRC team grants, FIRST Senior Mentors, NextUp RVA after school programs, and all other questions. Leighann Boland, Executive Director. Phone 804.514.7712.
