Michele L. (Warnock) Brott was elected President of the Board of Directors of the Chrysalis Foundation on June 26th. Her one-year term as president begins immediately.
About her role as President, Michele had this to say, “Chrysalis celebrated 26 years in 2015, and I’m honored to continue the tradition of community leadership addressing the needs of women and girls in central Iowa. I am excited to expand awareness and support of our goal to better the lives of women and girls in our community. Chrysalis’ programming centers around four concepts: safety, security, education, and economic opportunity. Chrysalis is very proud that every single dollar raised is returned to the community in advancement of these four goals—100% giveback is our promise. I joined the Board of Directors in 2011 after many years of respect for the organization. In particular, Chrysalis’ commitment to the Des Moines Public Schools with its signature After-School Program was one of the programs that drew me in. As a graduate of DMPS, I personally feel very strongly about giving back to these young women by supporting the educators who guide them daily.”
