An environmental non-profit is getting more connected with the community.
Aleta Daniels is the new Executive Director of Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB).
In this role, Daniels wants to immerse KPWB in Prince William County.
“One of the things I strive to do is develop a strong community by strengthening relationships between my organization and local residents, businesses, and other organizations,” Daniels wrote in an email.
Advancing the organization’s mission and building strong partnerships are some of her responsibilities.
Daniels previously served as a Community Outreach Coordinator for Keep Knoxville Beautiful in Knoxville, TN, and a Jackson County Conservation District Program Manager in Jackson, MI.
She earned her bachelors in Zoology from Michigan State University and received her Master’s in Applied Ecology from Michigan Technological University.
The proximity to Washington, D.C., and the work drew Daniels to the Executive Director position.
“Non-profits are my passion, community is my passion, being a leader in environmental sustainability is my passion,” she said. “So, it just seemed like a perfect fit.”
KPWB is able to do presentations or come in to talk to a class or at a library.
Organizations, teachers, parents, and other members of the community who are interested in working with KPWB may email Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org. They can also learn more about the non-profit by visiting its Facebook page or website.
