Simon Youth Foundation Names New Communications Manager

Simon Youth Foundation welcomes Jen Pittman to the team as the Foundation’s new communications manager. 
In this role, she will lead collaborative efforts to raise awareness of
the Foundation and its education-focused mission in communities that are home
to Simon Properties and Simon Youth Academies.
“Education has been a powerful, defining force in my life, and I am
thrilled to become part of a team that creates educational opportunities for at-risk
students,” Pittman said. “With thousands of Simon Youth Academy graduates and
scholarship recipients, the Foundation’s impact reaches across the country. I
look forward to helping tell the story of these incredible students and the
talented SYF team.”

Pittman comes to SYF after serving as deputy director of Indy Parks for
the city of Indianapolis. Her background also includes public relations work in
the nonprofit sector and in state government. 

“Jen brings a great mix of skill and experience
at an important time in Simon Youth Foundation’s 15-year history. SYF recently
graduated our 10,000th student and awarded our 10 millionth dollar in
scholarships, and while these are milestones worth celebrating, we have much
work to do,” said J. Michael Durnil, President and CEO of Simon Youth Foundation.
“I welcome Jen’s expertise as we strive to help students stay in school and
provide them with the skills and resources they need to create bright futures.”
