Partners’ directors, past and present: (l-r) Teri Thomson Randall, Valerie Ingram, Lorraine Goldman, Ruthanne Greeley

We are saddened to report the loss of Partners’ first full-time director, Lorraine Goldman. Lorraine was a force of nature – a tireless advocate for children and for public education. We will miss her mentorship, her amazing ability to advocate and fundraise, but most of all, we will miss her friendship. Thank you, Lorraine, for all you’ve done for our kids, our teachers, and our schools.

Today’s the day. Let’s do this!
