The Governor Mifflin Education Foundation has named Beth Stanislawczyk as its new Executive Director.
Stanislawczyk’s appointment was made official by the Governor Mifflin Board of School Directors at the meeting held on Monday, May 16. She will be the foundation’s second executive director, succeeding Brett Mayer.
The Governor Mifflin Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization benefiting programs, scholarships, and other opportunities for academic advancement within Governor Mifflin School District. The group also funds the Mifflin Summer Zone, a free program that allows more than 250 students to explore subjects of interest, including arts, science, music, and technology each summer.
The organization was founded in 1994 and was the first non-profit organization of its kind in Berks County.
Stanislawczyk will officially assume her role on June 13, 2022, Governor Mifflin Education Foundation treasurer Sherri Sacco, says Stanislawczyk has already been hard at work to invigorate and innovate initiatives within the foundation.
Stanislawczyk has served on the board of the Governor Mifflin Education Foundation for several years and is a self-proclaimed career fundraiser and volunteer.
Stanislawczyk also maintains deep ties to the Governor Mifflin School District and the community. She is an alumnus of Governor Mifflin High School as are her husband and three children.
She has also worked within the district as a teacher, a substitute teacher, and a field hockey coach. She is also a 1991 graduate of Penn State University and received her elementary teaching certification from Alvernia College in 1993. She was also employed at Penn State Berks in Student Disability Services.
“I’m excited to see Beth take the lead in advancing the Governor Mifflin Education Foundation. In addition to being a passionate fundraiser and activist on behalf of education initiatives, Beth is well known throughout Mifflin due to her experience as a teacher, educator, parent, and active member of the Governor Mifflin community,” said Dr. Karen Rule, President of the Governor Mifflin Education Foundation.
“In my new role, I hope to enlighten our community about GMEF, our mission, and the initiatives we support in the Governor Mifflin School District,” said Stanislawczyk,
“It’s important that alumni, community members, current and former staff, parents, and students realize that the funds we raise directly and positively impact the lives of our students and teachers at all levels K-12. I am excited to get started and look forward to helping the Governor Mifflin School District provide a robust and future-focused education for all students.”
