Alumna Katelynne Cowart ’15 Named Executive Director of Community School Collaborative

By: Michael Bruckler, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

In August, alumna Katelynne Cowart ’15 became the executive director of Community School Collaborative, a nonprofit located in Livingston, Montana.  

According to their website, the mission of Community School Collaborative is to enrich students’ educational experience and social development by engaging the talents, skills and knowledge of community members and organizations. The organization works with teachers, volunteers, businesses and local nonprofits to develop and lead enrichment workshops and activities for the students of the local middle school.    

Cowart majored in economics at St. Mary’s College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2015. She went on to receive a Masters of Public Administration from Montana State University.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
