On Friday, Paula Waters, the program director at the Avedis Foundation, announced her resignation after almost six years in that position.

“My most valuable reward has been in the relationships made and the collaborative work launched.  It's been both humbling and immensely rewarding to advocate for the organizations, nonprofits, education systems, governmental entities, civic organizations, and individuals that build the foundation of community,” she wrote in that announcement.

She thanked the Avedis Board of Directors and past President Michelle Briggs and current President Kathy Laster. 

“I also want to thank the small but mighty group of individuals who make up the Avedis staff.  It's been a highlight of my career to work with this team of uniquely gifted and hard working professionals who have worked tirelessly to help launch the Foundation and serve our communities.”
