Winston Knolls Foundation Announces New Board Secretary
Winston Knolls Foundation Board of Directors President Val Belmonte announced the appointment of Dominic Belmonte to the Winston Knolls Foundation Board. Mr. Belmonte will serve as the secretary effective June 1, 2019.
Mr. Belmonte is the CEO Emeritus of the Golden Apple Foundation and Distinguished Professor of Practice at National Louis University. Other roles at the Golden Apple Foundation included President and CEO and Director of Teacher Preparation. He previously served on the Board of Directors of the Academy for Urban School Leadership.
Mr. Belmonte is twice published and received the 2018 Pioneer Award from National Louis University for his decades-long drive to grow teachers and nurture them to excellence in the profession.
