Glenna Norvelle to Lead The Colorado Education Initiative

DENVER – The Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) announced today its new president and chief executive officer (CEO). Glenna Norvelle will lead the statewide education nonprofit starting on January 5, 2015. She joins CEI after serving as the president and CEO of Denver Kids, Inc., a nonprofit focused on ending the dropout crisis in Denver Public Schools through one-on-one educational counseling for students at risk of academic failure.

A search committee, chaired by CEI board member and Denver Museum of Nature & Science President and CEO George Sparks, conducted an extensive nationwide search for CEI’s next CEO. CEI Board of Trustees Chair Monica Skok served on the search committee.

“We’re thrilled Glenna will lead The Colorado Education Initiative,” Skok said. “Glenna is a visionary leader and a passionate advocate for children. Her breadth of experience, strategic partnership savvy, and fundraising acumen are critical components to advancing CEI’s mission. At Glenna’s core is a deep desire — and proven track record — of helping all students achieve success.”
