Jennifer Noble will become the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Guilford County Partnership for Children effective October 1, 2014. The organization’s Board of Directors voted unanimously in favor of Jennifer’s appointment in mid-September.
“Jennifer is the perfect fit to lead the next phase of work at the Partnership,” said Barbara Frye, Board Chair and Vice President of Children’s Initiatives at the United Way of Greater High Point. “She’s a passionate advocate for young children and their families, a strategic thinker who can manage great complexity, and a compelling communicator who focuses on building strong relationships. She’s the right person to help us make sure the needs of young children are top-of-mind within Guilford County.”
Jennifer brings more than a decade of experience in the legal field to the Partnership. She has served as a pro bono legal resource for nonprofits in Guilford County, including Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro and the Guilford Mental Health Alliance.
“I’m delighted to join this team of dedicated professionals who are helping to ensure that our youngest citizens are safe, healthy and ready to learn when they reach kindergarten,” said Noble. “I look forward to forging deeper connections with our Community Partners and with the early childhood professionals who work every day to deliver high-quality experiences to our children.”
Jennifer earned a law degree from Northwestern University School of Law, and also holds BA degrees in Elementary Education and Government from the College of William & Mary. She lives in Greensboro with her husband Tom, a law professor at the Elon University School of Law, and their three children. She is also an active community volunteer.
Jennifer replaces Alice Moore, who has served as Interim Executive Director since April.
