Cornesha Scott, formerly an intern in the Development department, has been promoted to Development Coordinator.  In this new role, Cornesha is responsible for a variety of functions, from managing the donor database and tracking donations to coordinating fundraising initiatives such as direct mail, monthly giving, and matching gifts and employee giving.  She has been working at the East Lake Foundation as the Development Intern since November 2012.  Before she joined East Lake Foundation, Cornesha was a teacher and after school counselor in Jupiter and Orlando, Florida, respectively.  A graduate of the University of Central Florida, Cornesha is currently pursuing a Master of Public Policy degree from Georgia State University and is a member of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.
