The Board of Directors of INTech Camp for Girls is excited to announce the appointment of Jerika Jones as President and Executive Director. Effective January 4th, Jerika filled the position recently vacated by our Founder, Khalia Braswell.
The Board made this selection based on Jerika’s extensive experience and professional achievements. Jerika comes to us as the former Executive Director of Outloud Louisville, (formerly known as Girl’s Rock Louisville), in Louisville, Kentucky, where she led for five consecutive years. Jerika holds a Masters of Arts in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies with a concentration in Music Performance Studies and New Musicology and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Louisville.
We are confident that Jerika’s many talents, collaborative and engaging leadership approach, and wide-range experience will help us continue INTech’s record as a high-integrity, vibrant, inclusive, and growing organization that creates opportunities for success for our scholars and other stakeholders.
Jerika will lead the INTech staff and be responsible for leading our Board of Directors and volunteer groups. Additionally, Jerika will work with our Board and staff to co-design the future of the organization in realizing its strategic goals and vision, including:
- enhancing the value of scholar participation while growing our programs
- developing external relationships to enhance contributions to knowledge, policy, and practice
- expanding organizational capacity to fulfill INTech’s strategic priorities, vision, and mission
Khalia’s last day on the INTech team will be February 28th. We cannot thank her enough for the dedication, passion, compassion, and visionary leadership she has provided INTech over the last seven and a half years. Khalia will continue to produce research articles about INTech as part of her Ph.D. and dissertation process to contribute to Computer Science Education scholarship.
Finally, we are grateful to SchermCo for leading our national Executive Director search, the INTech Board Members and to the entire INTech Camp community for your encouragement and support through this process.
Yours In Service,
The INTech Board of Directors and The ED Search Committee
