Communities in Schools of Milledgeville/Baldwin County (CISMBC) has named its second-ever executive director.
Janet Cavin, who was the Baldwin County Family Connection coordinator for nearly a decade, formally began her new role as CISMBC director Tuesday. She takes over the position previously held by Sandy Baxter, who retired late last year.
“I’m very excited about it,” Cavin said on starting her new job. “I’d been the Family Connection coordinator for almost 10 years, and we have been very close partners with Communities in Schools that whole time. I had the opportunity to work closely with the organization and could see firsthand the benefit for the community and the school system that Communities in Schools provides. The opportunity to actually come work for the organization was really a natural fit because we do need to work with each other, but we have different missions. Being able to come here just feels like I’m continuing the community partnership work that I have been doing.”
