Change of Leadership at the Kansas 4-H Foundation
Submitted by Kansas 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees
The Kansas 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees is announcing that Jake Worcester will be resigning from his position as the President/CEO later this month. He will continue to advance 4-H as he has accepted a position with the National 4-H Council.
“Jake will leave the Foundation in a very strong position for continued growth,” said Board Chair Warren Weibert. “Jake’s legacy includes relocating the Manhattan office to a space that allows the Foundation to facilitate philanthropic work, developing a new master plan for Rock Springs Ranch, positioning the organization for the next capital campaign, and creating a new 4-H camp model alongside our Kansas 4-H partners.”
Mindy Weixelman, who has served as the leader for the Foundation’s development team for more than four years, has been named interim president/CEO for the Kansas 4-H Foundation.
“Mindy’s commitment to the 4-H mission, extraordinary skills as a collaborative leader, and vision for the power of philanthropy will continue to advance the Kansas 4-H Foundation as the Board searches for the next leader for the organization,” Weibert said.
