JA Welcomes Back Lene McCollum

JA is thrilled to welcome back Lene McCollum to our team!

Lene will serve as the first-ever Director of Partner Engagement. She will focus on engaging existing JA partners and bringing new partner groups to the organization. Additionally, Lene will ensure JA's volunteer experience is unmatched!

Many educators, volunteers and community partners may recall her previous role with JA as the Regional Manager for Baltimore County and outlying counties. She was responsible for maintaining existing school system relationships and ensuring program quality in her regions. In this role, she reached over 10,000 students and hundreds of volunteers.

Lene’s passion for the nonprofit sector is evident. Before joining JA, she worked with Blossoms of Hope in Howard County. Most recently, she served as an Associate Director with Stringfellow Management Group, where she managed two non-profit professional organizations with a focus on certification, membership and conference planning.

Lene is looking forward to resuming her fulfilling work with JA in her new position.

“I am most excited to meet new people and catch up with some old friends. The relationships made here are definitely one of the most rewarding aspects of the job,” she says.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering with JA, drop Lene a message here.

Kristy Memphis is currently a marketing intern at JA of Central Maryland. She is a Communication, Technology, and Culture major at Bridgewater College, and a Political Science minor. She will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in May 2020.
