Hilltop RISE announced that Morgan DeBoth has been appointed as its first executive director.
“The next chapter of Hilltop RISE Economic CDC will be building from our community’s strengths, centering stakeholder voices, and reimagining our impact on the Hilltop,” said Betty Jaynes, chair of the Hilltop RISE board. “DeBoth’s background in the non-profit sector, along with her experience in program design and implementation, grant management, and collaborative leadership style, make her uniquely qualified to begin the work of Hilltop RISE.”
“I am excited to dig into the work by developing new and established pathways for current and upcoming business owners, community investment, building trust, and opportunity in alignment with the goals of Envision Hilltop,” said DeBoth. “I am committed to the Hilltop and Columbus’ greater westside and look forward to engaging groups, agencies, and Hilltop stakeholders to drive economic development along our commercial corridors.”
The community is invited to an open house to welcome DeBoth into her role at Hilltop RISE. The open house will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 8 at The Third Way Cafe, 3058 W. Broad St. in Columbus.
Hilltop Rise is a new non-profit Economic Community Development Corporation with a mission to expand economic opportunities for The Hilltop.
