Dunwoody Preservation Trust marks a new phase with its new executive director
The directors of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT) have appointed Dunwoody native Noelle Ross as its new executive director.
Ross brings to DPT a range of talents the board believes to be suited to leading a growing local non-profit. A graduate of the Marist School, she holds a B.A. in music from Oberlin College and is both a composer and classical singer who performs with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus. She also holds an M.A. in music education from the University of London Institute of Education.
For the past 16 years, she has held leadership and human resources management positions in which she worked with both adults and children as a trainer, a teacher and a director of children’s choral groups. Besides music, she considers her main talent to be team building.
“DPT has a small paid staff and relies heavily on volunteers,” said David Long, DPT board president. “We’re growing and changing fast and felt that Noelle’s experience as a team builder in a variety of environments made her a great fit for this newly expanded position.”
Ross reports to the board. In addition to managing the staff and leading the volunteers, she is tasked with executing the board’s vision, which includes expanding its services, growing its membership and building its donor and sponsor base.
As a Dunwoody native, Ross is very familiar with DPT’s activities, especially Lemonade Days, its largest fundraiser and a Dunwoody signature event held annually in April.
“My two daughters, ages 8 and 10, are excited by the prospect of attending all five days of Lemonade Days this year,” she said, “and I’m looking forward to helping move DPT into its newest phase and spread its recognition throughout the community.”
Ross invites anyone interested in joining, sponsoring or volunteering with DPT to contact her at the DPT office at (770) 668-0401 or email@example.com.
