All Kinds of News for August 08, 2018
In the wake of the departure of Michele and Jeff Boguslofski (announced in last month’s newsletter), Alpine Academy has restructured some of the departments and has some new faces to introduce.
Christian Egan has taken over as the Director of Alpine Academy, leaving quite a hole in the admissions department. As such, Alpine Academy has created the Admissions and Development team. This new team combines the admissions, marketing and development, and alumni and aftercare work that was already being done into one department. Jill McIntyre is the Director of this new team. Her supporting team members are Royal Robins, who has been and remains Alpine’s admissions coordinator, Caitlin Forcier, who has been and remains the main aftercare and alumni guru, and Jason Stout continues as a primary player in business development and will also take on an expanded role in admissions.
Jill McIntyre has spent the last 5 years at Alpine Academy teaching the consumer math class and helping out with fundraising campaigns and alumni family outreach. In her prior life, Jill has over 20 years of business experience including working with 2 major global communications firms in marketing and development. Jill also has experience in starting and running her own businesses.
Jill is the proud mother of 5 children and has 2 amazing grandchildren.
Additionally, Lynnette Daybell has been hired as the new Residential Director to fill Jeff Boguslofski’s shoes. Lynnette and her husband were family teachers (live-in “house parents” that are trained and certified in the evidence-based Teaching-Family Model) at the first Alpine Academy home in 2002. Since then, Lynnette has also served at Alpine Academy’s parent company, the Utah Youth Village, as a Treatment Foster Care Supervisor, Residential Supervisor, and Residential Director.
Alpine Academy is excited about these adjustments and is looking forward to continuing to provide the highest quality of care for students and families.
