The Harvest Foundation has promoted Sheryl Agee to the newly created position of impact officer/team leader.
She previously was Harvest’s grants administrator, a position now filled by Latala Payne Hodges (see related story).
“Sheryl brings a unique perspective to the Foundation’s work,” said Allyson Rothrock, president of the Harvest Foundation. “As a stellar grantee for approximately 10 years, she understands the needs and issues from the community side of our work. She brings that passion and expertise to Harvest and consistently encourages collaboration and improvement from all of us. She is a valued and respected member of the community as well as a genuine team member at Harvest.”
“I look forward to this opportunity for continued growth with the Foundation and the chance it will afford me to work more closely with our community partners,” Agee said. “In the two years since I joined the Foundation, I have learned a great deal about the impact Harvest is making in the community. As a Henry County native who loves this community, it is very rewarding to be part of something that is such a positive catalyst for our future.”
In her new position, Agee will be responsible for evaluating the impact of the Foundation’s investments in the community and working with local organizations and partners to identify new opportunities to promote positive results in addressing community needs.
Prior to joining the Harvest Foundation, Agee was director of the MHC Smart Beginnings early childhood coalition with the United Way of Henry County & Martinsville. Agee also previously worked in Human Resources and Communication for the VF Corporation. She earned her Nonprofit Management Certificate from Duke University in 2012.
She serves on the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation Community Investment Committee and works with her church children and youth programs at First Baptist Church – Ridgeway. She and her husband Billy reside in Ridgeway with their two children, Taylor and Josh.
