A Fond FarewellJune 30, 2020
Our beloved Sally Hartman, vice president for communications, is retiring after working at the Hampton Roads Community Foundation for nearly 29 years. She is the longest serving employee in our 70-year history!
She has served as coordinator of our scholarship program, launched our communications program, spearheaded our award-winning annual report, helped nonprofits tell their stories and assisted generous people from all walks of life looking to make charitable commitments.
A former newspaper and magazine reporter and editor, Sally has been involved in numerous civic and professional organizations, including serving as President of the Public Relations Society of America – Hampton Roads Chapter as well as President of the Rotary Club of Norfolk.
As a long-time Norfolk resident who grew up in Texas and Arkansas, Sally is a dear colleague friend who we will miss greatly!
Sally’s efforts have guided and strengthened the community foundation as it works to make life better in our region. We are better because of her.
Farewell, Sally. We appreciate you and all you have done!
