Arete Welcomes New Senior Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations

We are thrilled to introduce our newest team member, Heidie Nesset, who has joined Arete Scholars as the Senior Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations.

In her new role, Heidie will spearhead our national corporate and foundation fundraising efforts, bringing her wealth of experience and dedication to our mission of helping students reach their full potential.

Heidie comes to us with an impressive background, having dedicated a decade of her career to serving children at Step Up For Students, where she played a pivotal role in growing the organization to become the nation's largest K-12 scholarship provider.

 "I'm thrilled to join in Arete's mission to help students reach their full potential," says Heidie. "The corporate and charitable communities have an amazing opportunity to positively impact students' lives. I'm looking forward to showcasing Arete's mission and the opportunities to join us as we continue this important work."

All of us at Arete are excited to have Heidie on board, and we look forward to seeing her help grow our organization so even more children across Georgia and Louisiana can access a quality education.

Please join us in giving Heidie a warm welcome to the Arete Scholars family!
