RUTLAND—The board of directors for the Rutland County Parent Child Center (RCPCC) has announced that Mary Zigman, M.S. Ed., has been named the new executive director, effective June 1. Zigman succeeds Caprice Hover who was recently appointed executive director of United Way of Rutland County. Hover had been executive director of RCPCC for the past seven years.
“After a national search, and extensively interviewing local and regional candidates, the board and staff are excited to stand behind Mary in her new role,” said Will Gormly, president of the board for RCPCC. “Mary will bring leadership and creativity to RCPCC’s programs, along with a deep sense of commitment to the children and families we serve.”
Zigman has worked for several years as a non-profit leader and has a proven track record for growth, business development and donor cultivation. Her more recent work includes the Impact Program, a 2Gen initiative in Sarasota County, Fla., which supports children and their parents through education and community building initiatives designed to break the cycle of poverty.
“I am looking forward to this chapter in my life,” says Zigman. “My whole working career and education has been leading up to this point. The staff and board are so dedicated to the overall care of the organization. I’m excited to continue moving programs forward, and developing new relationships with other partnering agencies and donors.”
The Rutland County Parent Child Center, one of 15 parent-child centers located throughout Vermont, is a community based, private 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and meeting the needs of children, youth and families.
