Newark School of the Arts today announced that Sherrie Thaler-Johnson, the school’s development director for 25 years, will retire from her position on August 31. Sherrie has been a vital part of the school’s legacy, and over her tenure helped to raise 70% of the School’s annual operating budget. This money was raised through corporate grants, foundation grants, government grants, individual giving and fundraising events. She has helped lead many fundraising events as well as two capital campaigns.
“It has been my pleasure to work with a wonderful board, staff and donors while serving the community in this capacity. To see young children enrolled at the school grow-up, develop their talents, go off to college and then come back to the school years later to enroll their own children, is most satisfying...” -Sherrie Thaler-Johnson
