Reverend Starsky Wilson, president and CEO of Deaconess Foundation in St. Louis, Missouri, was elected unanimously as the new chair of NCRP's board, succeeding Sherece West-Scantlebury. West-Scantlebury, who leads Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, served as NCRP's board chair for four years.
The new directors joining NCRP's dynamic and diverse board include:
Sharon Alpert, President and CEO, Nathan Cummings Foundation
Jocelyn Sargent, Executive Director, Hyams Foundation
Joseph Scantlebury, Vice President for Program and Strategy (Places), W.K. Kellogg Foundation

"The work of NCRP is needed now more than ever," said West-Scantlebury, who is leaving the board due to term limits after serving for nine years. "Reverend Wilson's leadership and commitment to social justice will enhance NCRP's efforts to ensure our nation's social movements are getting the philanthropic dollars they need to succeed." . . .
