Meet the new Marketing and Community Relations Manager and the new BFC Education and Outreach team!
It is my pleasure to introduce our new Marketing and Community Relations Manager to you along with our new Education and Outreach team!
Jon Megas-Russell has joined us as of late September. We are very pleased to welcome him to our team. He has been serving you as a member of the Board of Directors for the past nearly three years, and therefore knows much about our business, our cooperative goals, and our community activities.
Jon has been employed most recently as the Marketing Manager at New Chapter, focusing on in-store merchandising, website and social media ventures, and other strategic opportunities. He also has experience in renewable energy businesses and educational tours, and brings a wealth of strong marketing skills to this position. Jon enjoys collaborative projects, and he is a musician and storyteller as well. Please join us in welcoming him--in a different way--to our Co-op!
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
Although we bid farewell to Vicky Senni, Lizi Rosenberg and Nathanael Matthiesen have slipped willingly into the wide world of BFC Education and Outreach!
Lizi has been working most recently with students at Oak Grove School and Hilltop Montessori, teaching cooking and having fun with food as a window to other cultures. She has been involved with the Healthy Snack program and the school garden program, so she knows many of the Co-op's links to the local schools from her own experience.
Nathanael has been working in Information Technology at the BFC, as well as in the Front End, but also has experience running his own small farm in Guilford, VT, with his wife, and has taught and developed courses in North Carolina and California.
We are very lucky to have them both, and all of us are planning to continue the development of our Education and Outreach programs with their creative energies!
