We are excited to announce that Joana (Wagenberg) Kirsch (Valedictorian,’95) was named the Associate Director of Development at Scheck Hillel. Her main focus will be on alumni affairs, an endeavor that she hopes will reconnect many of our amazing alumni with their “home”.
Joana is a proud Scheck Hillel alumna, and for the past 6 years she has also been a proud Scheck Hillel parent of 3.
Joana’s enthusiasm for her alma mater is evident. She says that when she was selecting a school for her children, she could not picture enrolling them anywhere else. She stresses that the community feeling, which existed in her days as a student, is stronger than ever and that the Jewish values she learned here have guided her throughout her lifetime. She attributes her involvement to the lessons on community service that she received at Scheck Hillel so many years ago.
