Jane Riley-Gambrell to Retire from Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area

Posted By Together SC, Thursday, June 15, 2017

After 24 years serving as the Executive Director of Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area (CIS), Jane Riley-Gambrell, announced Friday that she will be retiring in the Fall of 2017.

Riley-Gambrell joined CIS in 1993, when the organization was named “Cities In Schools” and housed on the campus of Septima P. Clarke Academy. During her time at CIS, Riley-Gambrell has seen 1,193 students identified as at-risk of dropping out of school graduate.

CIS Board Chair, Lydia Applegate, describes Jane’s work with CIS as prolific. “Upon her arrival, CIS was a program serving one school with 100 students. Under her leadership, the program has expanded in Charleston and Berkeley Counties, and now impacts more than 10,000 students and their families annually.”

“CIS will always hold a special place in my heart and I’m excited about and committed to supporting its future growth and success,” stated Riley-Gambrell. “My role as CIS’s Executive Director has afforded me the opportunity to impact the lives of children, while working alongside dedicated and talented staff, educators, and community members – it has truly been an honor.”

In addition to her role as Executive Director, Riley-Gambrell has served several community and civic groups, including the Mayor’s Commission for Children Youth and Families, Trident United Way, The Rotary Club of Charleston, the Board of Directors for the South Carolina Aquarium, the Board of Directors for Daniel Joseph Jenkins Institute for Children, The Junior League of Charleston and the Board of Directors for the Carolina Lowcountry Girl Scout Council.
 
Riley-Gambrell’s leadership and dedication will be missed by the CIS Board of Directors, her team and the broader education community, with whom CIS partners to do its work. A date for a celebration honoring Riley-Gambrell’s service to CIS will be announced in the near future. 

The CIS Board of Directors has named a Search Committee to commence the search for a successor who can build on the work of Riley-Gambrell and lead CIS into its next chapter. 

Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area is the Lowcountry’s leading dropout prevention program designed to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.  www.cischarleston.org.

Posted By Together SC, Monday, June 12, 2017

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston announced that the board of directors has appointed Kathy ‘KP’ Papadimitriou as Chief Executive Officer effective May 30, 2017.
 
“After a thorough selection process, the Board of Directors is pleased to announce that KP is joining the Ronald McDonald House team and will lead the charity as we look into the future,” said, Bert Hefke, Board President. 
 
KP remarked, “As I return to my home state, it is such a privilege to be able to join a dynamic team and such loyal and giving donors who have established such a worthy living charity for our community.  This community has given me so much growing up, and I see it a privilege to be able to help the children and families during their intensive medical times.”
 
KP grew up in Charleston. Following her college experiences, she specialized in the Hospitality and Live Event Industry. With over 30 years of experience, she matriculated to running some of the top event companies across the US, Canada, Europe and the Pacific Rim on a day to day basis.

Her creative and operational expertise has been instrumental in the design and execution of numerous award-winning International programs to include multiple Sponsors’ Olympic Hospitality Programs, the NBA All Star events, Board of Director meetings, corporate product launches, top agent incentives, corporate training programs and fundraising events. Her clientele list includes many of the Fortune 500 brands.
 
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston is a 32-bedroom home where families stay while their children undergo extensive medical treatment. Within our walls, parents and children lead a life as normal as possible during their traumatic times without the financial burden of costly hotel, food and travel expenses.
 
The Ronald McDonald Family Room at MUSC provides a sanctuary within the hospital where family members can rest, read, shower or have a cup of coffee while still being only minutes away from their seriously ill child.
 
Ronald McDonald House Charities empowers families by providing stability and vital resources so they can get and keep their child happy and healthy. By keeping families together, RMHC helps children heal faster and cope better.
