Chamber’s Detroit Board Fellowship Program Records First School Board Appointee

The Chamber’s Detroit Board Fellowship Program notched its first participant to receive an appointment to a school board, as Ian Wiesner, a senior loan officer at Capital Impact Partners and a Leadership Detroit Class XXXIV graduate, was sworn onto the board of Southwest Detroit Lighthouse Charter Academy on Tuesday, March 4.

The Detroit Board Fellowship is funded by Excellent Schools Detroit through grants from the Skillman and Walton Family Foundations. The Chamber trains participants to understand school academic performance, board roles and issues surrounding urban education, and then assists with the identification of board vacancies.
