Welcoming Our New Executive Director, Jackie de Batista

We are pleased to announce we have a new Executive Director at Angelic Organics Learning Center. Welcome, Jackie de Batista! As a past graduate of Angelic Organics Learning Center's Farm Beginnings program and a past CRAFT Steering Committee member, we can attest to her knowledge, skills and passion for the Learning Center. She is a farmer managing a 205 acres sustainable family farm and she brings skills as an educator and mentor with 4-H Youth Development, University of Illinois Extension.   Jackie’s start date is Oct 21st. Please join us in welcoming Jackie to the Learning Center as our new Executive Director!   We would also like to thank Pam Wilcox who has served as our interim Executive Director while we were searching for a permanent candidate. Pam’s assistance during the past year was critical to our success. Thank you, Pam!
