PSU Foundation team member Scott Shlaes is the new GSE Development Director. He follows Jaymee Jacoby, who was recently promoted to a new position within the foundation after four years with the GSE.
Shlaes is a recent graduate of the GSE’s Leadership for Sustainability Education (LSE) master’s program and a parent of a Helen Gordon Child Development Center student. He has served as Director of Development for Sustainability Initiatives at the PSU Foundation for the past five years where he had the opportunity to build support for sustainability-related programming in multiple colleges, schools, institutes and centers across the University.
Dean Randy Hitz said, “Scott’s educational and fundraising backgrounds make him a very good fit for the GSE, and I look forward to working with him to advance our fundraising efforts.”
Like the development directors of other schools at PSU, the GSE development director is assigned to the GSE but works for the PSU Foundation.
