Recruiting for Uplift Education

Over the past four years Victory Search Group has recruited 19 transforming educators to the leadership team and to campuses of Uplift Education in North Texas. The nationally prominent charter management organization, whose goals are to close the achievement gap among students regardless of socio-economic or ethnic background and ensure that 100% of its students graduate and enroll in college, is on track to serve 13,000 students by 2015 at 39 schools.


AVANCE-Dallas, a grassroots nonprofit agency that delivers a unique educational program for low-income families, has selected Anne Thomas as its Executive Director. A favorite at AVANCE, where she previously served as Operations Manager, Anne has a strong nonprofit leadership background including a Director position at Big Thought (the arts and education organization), as Vice President at ChildCareGroup, and as Chief Operating Officer and Interim CEO (two years) at the Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County.
