ASAP announces new board chair, Jenaye Munford!

On September 15, 2020 ASAP’s Board of Directors unanimously elected Jenaye Munford to serve as the organization’s new board chair. Known for her effective leadership style, networking, and organization skills, Jenaye manages and implements citywide legislative and community-based initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life for Philadelphia residents as a Project Manager for Philadelphia City Council President, Darrell L. Clarke.

In addition to her professional savvy, Jenaye brings to her new role a strong personal connection to the mission of ASAP

As board chair, Jenaye will succeed longtime board member and education advocate Wendy Glazer. Wendy has championed ASAP’s work since its inception in 2002 and has been a constant source of support and encouragement for ASAP’s staff. Among other accomplishments, in her four-year tenure as chair Wendy led a pivotal transformation of the board’s practices and composition following the retirement of ASAP’s founder, Marciene Mattleman.

The start of Jenaye’s term coincides with a school year unlike any in the organization’s 18 year history. Fortunately, Jenaye is up to the challenge.

“I am honored to continue to build on the legacy of ASAP founder Marciene Mattleman in continuing to keep children safe, enriched, and engaged outside the classroom.” — Jenaye
