GCF Announces Leadership Team and New Board Members

In February, the Granville Community Foundation welcomed three new board members and announced leadership changes to the current Board. 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.

Leadership changes on the Board include the appointment of Angela Katona as Vice-President, Michelle Lerner as Co-Chair of the Grants Committee, and Kyle Bartholomew as Co-Chair of the Communications Committee. Continuing as Executive Board Members include Vince Paumier as President, Olivia Aguilar as Secretary and Scott Miller as Treasurer. New members to the Board include Lindsey Hoskinson, Jay Snyder and Jill Young.

Lindsey Hoskinson is a Commercial Lender with over 15 years in the banking industry. She also is owner of a 4th-generation grain and cattle farm and owner of a local trucking company.  Lindsey has experience in leadership, management, sales and marketing, accounting, and process improvement.  She received her bachelors from Ohio State University’s College of Food, Ag, and Environmental Sciences and her MBA from Ohio University.  She enjoys running, cooking, yoga, and trying new wines with friends. Lindsey and her husband Bill have 2 children.

Jay Snyder owns SteamRoller Bagel Sandwiches in Granville, and has a long and varied story of how he got there . Eleven years in national fine art and craft festivals, and three as the executive director of the Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra added substantial expertise in nonprofits and fine arts organizations to his education in Public Relations and Mass Communication from Miami University. Since moving to Licking County in 2010 he has become an active participant in community organizations, serving on the board of directors of the Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra, Granville Area Chamber of Commerce, Granville School District’s Whole Child Committee, and Granville Cub Scouts Pack 3. He and his wife Kristen are proud to call Granville home, and have two children in Granville Schools.

Jill Young is a 5 year Granville resident with a professional background in public sector policy and education. She has worked as an intervention specialist in Gahanna and New Albany Schools and as a policy consultant for the Ohio School Boards Association, which allowed her to support a wide variety of districts across the state. Jill attended The Ohio State University, where she obtained a master’s degree in educational administration and a juris doctor degree. She has served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) guardian ad litem and is on the Fundraising Committee for Discover the Dream, a local event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Jill and her husband, Jeremy, have three young daughters.

Retiring from their terms on the Foundation are Josh Sanders, a 6-year board member who served as President during his tenure, and Anne Weinberg, a 5-year board member who most recently held the position of Vice-President. Both retiring board members have been tireless in their support of and work with the Foundation. The current board would like to officially thank them for their incredible service and dedication.
