A Warm Welcome From Our Executive Director Elizabeth Norris:
Elizabeth joined the Friends of Sugar Creek team as Executive Director at the start of 2015.
Dear FSC Members,
I am honored and excited to begin my role as the new Executive Director of FSC. I bring with me 6 years experience working in development, and as a grant writer, for a variety of nonprofit organizations including Joffrey Ballet Chicago, Operation Home, Everyone is Gay, and Palmetto Medical Initiative. I am thrilled to bring my passion, experience, and skills to FSC and to the many opportunities and challenges ahead of us. I look forward to building upon FSC’s 28 years of strong environmental advocacy and achievement.
The mission of FSC, to protect, restore, and promote appreciation of Sugar Creek and its watershed, encourages steadfast community support. Water quality, accessibility, and cleanliness are sustainably achieved through partnership. I look forward to working alongside our members, partners, and the community in pursuit of this common good.
I am inspired daily by the men and women within Montgomery County who work tirelessly for the betterment of others and their community. Those whom I’ve had the pleasure to meet are incredibly giving of both their time and aid, donating their conversation towards the continuation of community dialogue. What can we do better? How can we improve? I want to hear about your goals and priorities, and how we can move strategically, collectively and collaboratively towards our shared vision of a better Sugar Creek.
We will kick the year off with our Annual Meeting on April 23rd, one of our most popular networking and knowledge sharing events. Join us to hear more about FSC community initiatives in 2015, and the many ways we’re working to preserve and protect Sugar Creek. I will be there so please be sure to say hello!
FSC has an amazing team of staff, board, and members devoted to the restoration and preservation of Sugar Creek and its tributaries throughout West Central Indiana. Please be in touch and on the lookout for many new ways to share your ideas and be involved with the FSC community.
With Heartfelt Appreciation,
