From the desk of our new Board Chair
Support My Club recently named Heidi Jannenga, Co-Founder and COO of WebPT, as our board chair. Her expertise, guidance and enthusiasm will be a shining light as we continue to expand the depth and breadth of our services to public high school clubs and teams. Please read below for a special message from Heidi:
Nelson Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Learning does not stop when the student leaves the classroom. Often, true life skills are learned by students participating in extracurricular activities. As a high school multi-sport athlete, member of the National Honor Society, Key Club and Student Council yearbook committee, I can honestly say these groups helped shape the person and leader that I am today.
Because I believe in the impact of after school programs, it is truly an honor to serve as the Support My Club Chairman of the Board alongside Founder and CEO Amy Armstrong. She is an inspiration and a mentor to me as I dive deeper into the non-profit and philanthropic world. As an entrepreneur and co-founder of my own company, WebPT, I bring the knowledge and gritty experience of growing a business from an idea into a multi-million dollar platform company with strengths in operations, product development and people. We have assembled an amazing board to drive our mission of supporting students on their path to graduation by engaging communities to fulfill the needs of school clubs and teams. We sincerely thank you for your continued investment in not only our work and success, but your support of all of the students pursuing their hopes, dreams and aspirations through participation in extracurricular activities.
