Bloomington, Indiana, August 27, 2013 – The Foundation of Monroe County Community Schools (FMCCS) announced today that it has hired Cyrilla Helm as its new Executive Director.

I was originally attracted to FMCCS because of its mission and my belief that education is the most powerful tool we can give to our children and community. I plan to continue working with our current donors and also creating relationships with new donors in our community to share our philanthropic strategy to ensure all students have the opportunity to learn and succeed. “
Mrs. Helm replaces Sara Neeley, who recently returned to Atlanta to work with the REACH Program as the Business Development Manager.
