A New Executive Director For the Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center

The Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Ms. Michelle J. Williams is our new Executive Director!  Ms. Williams began her tenure as Executive Director of Hilltop on January 1, 2018. She is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and a 1994 graduate of Wilmington High School. In middle school she began to participate in the “Vision of Hope” program sponsored by Paul and Gloria Fine. Her participation in that program enabled her to attend and graduate from the University of Delaware in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. She received her Master’s Degree in Administration and Human Services in 2008 from Wilmington University. She is in the process of completing her dissertation for her Doctorate in Philosophy with a concentration in Nonprofit Management and Leadership.

Ms. Williams is no stranger to Hilltop. She has been employed at the Center for 17 years serving in several capacities: Family Service Worker, Lead Family Service Worker, and Deputy Director. She currently serves as the Director of Operations.  During this time, Ms. Williams has established an excellent rapport with the children, parents, staff, and major stakeholders of the Center.  She will replace long term Executive Director, Jea P. Street, who became Director of Development on January 1, 2018 and will continue to serve in that capacity until he fully retires from Hilltop in November, 2018.

The Hilltop Board of Directors believes Ms. Williams will be a major asset to agency operations and looks forward to continued growth and development of Hilltop’s programs under her leadership.

Welcome Ms. Williams!  We’ll have A LOT more to say about outgoing Executive Director Street in a future edition.
