The Granville Community Foundation is pleased to welcome new appointee, Scott Mortimer, to the role of Ex Officio Representative for Granville Schools. Mortimer was approved for this position by the Granville Exempted School District School Board in September and will begin serving as their appointee to the Granville Community Foundation effective immediately. Mortimer brings years of experience in business management and accounting to the GCF Board, as well as his dedication to the Granville community. His desire to serve in this role is firmly rooted in supporting and uplifting the community within which his family resides.
“Scott Mortimer has been involved in Granville Schools in many capacities. His recent volunteer work on the school levy was instrumental in providing accurate information to the community. Scott is a true advocate for excellence in our education system and community," said Jeff Brown, Superintendent, Granville Exempted Village Schools, of the appointment.
Mortimer fills the role of Ex Officio Representative for Granville Schools due to the position being vacated by long-term Foundation board member and Secretary, Olivia Aguilar. Aguilar will be pursuing a new opportunity to serve as the Director for the Miller Worley Center for the Environment this spring. Granville Community Foundation President, Vince Paumier said, “Olivia brought her organizational skills, positive can-do attitude and commitment to the Granville community to the GCF. We wish her the best of luck in her new endeavors but she will definitely be missed.”
In addition to the appointment of Scott Mortimer to the GCF Board, the Foundation is pleased to announce that current board member, Jill Young, will be stepping into the position of Board Secretary. Jill’s professional experience, attention to detail and dedication to the community makes her a great fit for the role.
Since the Foundation’s inception nearly 50 years ago, more than 100 Granville residents have served on the Foundation’s all-volunteer Board of Directors. Board members are responsible for the fiscal management of its $2 million endowment and allocation of community grants, which have totaled over $200,000 in the last three years. Every year, as terms expire, the Granville Community Foundation accepts applications to its Board of Directors. This very special honor allows individuals to support our community in a unique way. All are welcome to apply and will find required application documents at the Granville Community Foundation website at www.granvillecommunityfoundation.org.
