Seedco congratulates Tara Colton, our Senior Vice President of Programs, on being named one of New York’s Rising Stars in the nonprofit sector. For the first time this year, New York Nonprofit (NYN) Media is recognizing 40 of New York’s Rising Stars in the nonprofit world under the age of 40, and Seedco is proud to announce Tara’s recognition as one of the inaugural awardees.
Having joined Seedco in March 2015 after most recently serving as Associate Vice President for Program Development and Planning at FEGS Health & Human Services, Tara brings a wealth of knowledge and over 15 years of experience in workforce development, human services, adult education, and government and nonprofit leadership. In her current role, Tara oversees all of Seedco’s workforce and work and family support programs across New York, Tennessee, Georgia, and Maryland, while collaborating with the organization’s leadership and Board of Directors to define and carry out Seedco’s strategic directions. Working closely with Seedco leadership and the program team, Tara has already helped to secure multiple new and exciting contracts to assist low-income individuals and families in achieving economic and financial stability. Seedco is confident that through Tara’s leadership, the organization will continue expanding its ability to help individuals and communities in need.
Seedco is thrilled about this well-deserved recognition and would like to thank NYN for acknowledging the hard work and skilled leadership that Tara and the other Rising Star awardees bring to New York’s nonprofit community.
