Anne Womack is taking a more active role to help her alma mater.
Womack, a 2003 graduate of Mountain Brook High School, is the new executive director of the Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation.
“It’s exciting to be back home,” Womack said. “Development in education is my passion. To do it in a place where I’m from and to be building my career working with my alma mater is a great feeling.”
The Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation was established in 1992 by residents to make sure the city’s school system continued to perform well. Since 1995, the foundation has provided $4.75 million in funding, which has been used to help teacher development, technology and equipment enhancements for the city schools.
Womack said she hopes to continue to build on the reputation of the foundation and continue its mission to better Mountain Brook City schools.
“I’ve got a great development committee, and I’ll be working closely with them on developing new events,” Womack said. “We’ve got two events planned for our 20th anniversary celebration, one in October and one in November.”
Womack said she has big plans for the foundation, including instituting an annual giving program. She also hopes to get more alumni to give back to the schools.
“My goal for the foundation is that it will continue to grow,” said Womack. “I want us to continue to meet the needs of students and to continue and do an even better job in improving teacher development, technology and library enhancement.”
