Recently expanding its program and service to new sites including Brinley Middle School and poised to partner with Swainston Middle School next school year, the new development team will focus on the stewardship of private and public funds, building relationships within the community, and creating sustainability for the organization to further scale its impact to better meet the ongoing need for educational equity and support. “Melvin, Roxanne, and the entire development team are perfectly suited to work collaboratively to focus on creating an actionable financial roadmap as CORE continues to grow and serve more Scholars and families in the community,” said Executive Director Jeff Jones. “Melvin has been with CORE for several years and fully understands the significant impact the program has and what is needed to ensure long-term sustainability.” Prior to his role as Development Manager, King initially joined CORE as a Program Manager before transitioning to a Data and Grant Manager with the education and equity-focused non-profit. Previously, King served as a Learning Specialist at Touro University and as a Case Manager for Nevada Partners Inc., where he worked in the realm of adjudicated youth and alternative education. ​Prior to that, he worked as a Developmental Advising Specialist at West Virginia University (WVU) where his duties included assistance with budget analysis and creation, management of program projects, course and curriculum creation, department head meeting agendas and meeting attendance, and inter-department meeting facilitation. A native of Pennsylvania, King is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership from Columbia International University and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Behavioral Health from Penn State and then a master’s degree in forensic science from Drexel University. “I am looking forward to connecting with people to further ensure the ongoing success of CORE. It is a unique program that directly and positively impacts those we serve long-term,” said King. “We are committed to ensuring that under-resourced children and families can achieve a high level of success when provided with sufficient tools and opportunities. I intend to work towards growing and safeguarding those resources.” To learn more about CORE check out our video here or to become a CORE Champion, visit About CORE CORE, powered by The Rogers Foundation, believes all children and families have the right to reach their full potential and pursue individual success.
