Today we officially welcome Todd DeJesus to the Humanity Project as our newest Board of Directors vice president. Todd brings a scientific background to our organization, with a bachelor's degree in geological engineering from Princeton University and a master's degree in geochemistry from the University of Virginia. This experience will be useful to the Humanity Project in a variety of ways -- we are an empirical, research-based nonprofit group, of course, grounding all our programs on solid evidence.
But Todd brings more than his scientific knowledge to our work. Living with his husband, Kevin, in Wilton Manors, Florida, Todd DeJesus also works for that vibrant city as Capital Projects and Grants Manager. In this job, he manages many city-funded projects and seeks alternative funding sources for Wilton Manors and its partners. He has devoted most of his career to environmental planning and engineering. And Todd is active in a variety of local environmental efforts, including working with schools to help them create gardens. In addition to all this, he's an ACT and SAT prep tutor and avidly enjoys playing tennis and volleyball.
Aside from his diverse background, though, Todd is a remarkably bright man with an interest in helping his community. We believe that he and the Humanity Project are a very good match. And we all welcome him to our expanding team.
