The Foundation hires new Executive Director
The Anacortes Schools Foundation has hired an executive director to manage the non-profit organization. Marta McClintock officially started in September when she arrived with her family from Idaho. No stranger to this area, McClintock lived in Oak Harbor for eight years while her husband was stationed there. She says they’ve always wanted to end up in Anacortes because of the strong schools and the engaged community.
