Dear TPPP supporter,
TPPP is pleased to welcome Meg Boyko as our new Executive Director. Meg has been a very involved member of TPPP for several years. As the public awareness committee’s social media liaison, Meg has been responsible for many of the TPPP posts and tweets that have kept you engaged, informed and intrigued about adolescent sexual health in Missouri and the nation.
With a background in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and significant health and nonprofit experience from the Missouri chapter of the March of Dimes and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Gateway chapter, Meg brings expertise in grant and project management as well as a track record of successful state and local advocacy efforts. In addition, Meg has lived in various cities and towns across Missouri, including Kirksville, Columbia and St. Louis so she is knowledgeable about the adolescent sexual health priorities of the entire state.
Our search committee was impressed with Meg’s attention to detail and her ability to communicate effectively with professionals and volunteers. We recognized that these qualities, paired with her ability to conduct needs assessments and evaluate programs and outcomes, made her a natural fit to lead TPPP forward.
Meg’s first day in the TPPP offices will be October 13th. We will hold a special “meet and greet” coffee hour for her at our November 14thprofessional development meeting. Please join us at 8:30 a.m. to welcome Meg before our regularly scheduled program (“Working with teens who want a pregnancy”) begins at 9:00 a.m.
Thank you for your continued confidence in our organization as we promote adolescent sexual health and teen pregnancy prevention in Missouri. Meg and the TPPP Board of Directors look forward to continuing our partnership with you to accomplish this through advocacy, collaboration, training, and public awareness.
TPPP Board President
