Kalamazoo Promise executive director stepping down

May 6, 2013

One of the founders of the Kalamazoo Promise is stepping down after five years with the education scholarship program.

Janice Brown has served as the Kalamazoo Promise’s executive director since 2008. Before that, she was the superintendent of Kalamazoo Public Schools.

She will continue to work with The Promise as Executive Emeritus with focus on vision, strategy and development and also assume a position on The Kalamazoo Promise Board in January 2014.

The privately funded Kalamazoo Promise provides up to 100 percent of tuition at any of Michigan’s state college and universities for students who attend Kalamazoo public schools from kindergarten through high school.
