Pratt Northam Foundation Board of Directors Announces New Executive Director

The Pratt Northam Foundation board would like to announce the selection of a new Executive Director, Sarah Bullock.
Sarah joins the Foundation with extensive community development experience, currently serving as a part-time Community Development Specialist with the Town of Wilna. Her experience in grant writing, project management and relationship building made her an ideal candidate to further the Foundations impact throughout local communities. Additionally, Sarah has benefitted from the Pratt Northam mission in her previous role as Board President at Hand in Hand Early Childhood Center, applying and receiving grant funds for various projects.
“It is with great regret that Karen Petersen has decided to leave us after a great tenure serving us and the greater Lewis County community.  Karen was a great ambassador for the Foundation and helped us make a difference in the lives of the citizens in the North Country. We are very excited to have Sarah join us in our never-ending quest to improve the lives of the people of the North Country.  We are convinced that her experience, enthusiasm, and commitment to our mission will continue Pratt Northam’s desire to change the course of the future in the area.  She will join her predecessors- Don Exford, Tom Yousey and Karen Petersen in promoting the goals of the Foundation,” stated the Foundations Board President, Randy Schell.

“The Pratt Northam Foundation has done wonderful work improving the quality of life in the communities along the Black River Valley, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this organization. I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, as well as the communities it serves,” stated Sarah Bullock, the Foundation’s Executive Director.
The Pratt Northam Foundation, established in 1962, is a private foundation that seeks to be a catalyst to projects that improve the quality of life in the communities of the Black River Valley from Boonville to Carthage. The Foundation provides financial support to not-for-profit organizations and government agencies through a grant process, and values projects and opportunities for young people and other innovative initiatives.
The Pratt Northam Board of Directors is excited to work with Sarah in continuing to provide funding to projects that increase the quality of life for youth and residents living in the Black River Valley.
