It is with a mixture of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces Sara Nichols' departure as Executive Director of STAR, effective November 15, 2017. In 2011, Sara started with STAR as the Communications and Programs Manager, transitioned to Program Director and then became Executive Director in 2015. During her entire tenure with STAR, Sara has been an ardent champion for recycling in Texas and her leadership, passion and strengths have been instrumental in shaping STAR’s model programs.
The Board of Directors is hopeful and excited for the next chapter for STAR. Over the next few months, we will be conducting a search to find a new STAR Executive Director. During this transition period, it is our priority to maintain an effective organization and continue work to fulfill STAR’s mission.
I hope you will join me and the Board of Directors in wishing Sara the very best in her new endeavor, and we look forward to following the success of her career. For the full letter from STAR Board Chair Ashley Faseler, please click here. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Summit next week.
