Introducing...Kevin Michael Stovel!

Our Executive Director Lindsay Stovel welcomed Kevin Michael on July 7, 2016. They are both doing great! We just had to share a photo of Lindsay with her little cutie. 

Little Kevin has already informed us that he is looking forward to registering to start working on his Bronze Duke of Ed Award in July 2030. ;-)

Lindsay will be on Maternity Leave until summer 2017.

Stepping in as Interim Executive Director is Barb Gillis. Barb has been a long time Board Member and has also been the President of our Board of Directors. We are happy that she is here to bring her extensive experience to the position! You can reach Barb at 204-988-3018 or at bgillis@dukeofed.org.
