A Message From Our Governing Board

Dear ANY Community,

America Needs You (ANY) celebrates champions for first-generation college students and those who embody our mission.

After ten extraordinary years of service on staff, Marianna Tu will be departing from her role at the end of this program year in May 2022 to pursue medical school. We have long admired her dedication to life-long learning, and this decision reflects just that. Today is not goodbye, and we are happy to have her with us through the spring to ensure a smooth transition.

Under Marianna’s leadership, ANY has expanded its impact and growth, maintained strength and momentum through the COVID-19 pandemic, and transformed the lives of thousands of first-generation college students and young professionals. Today the organization is in a position of strength and growth, with a best-in-class team that is fiercely dedicated to our mission. We are excited to look for a new leader to take us into our next phase of growth. To that end, we have formed a search committee and have retained On-Ramps, a leading mission-focused executive search firm with a strong focus on DEI, to manage the search for ANY’s next CEO.

We want to share Marianna’s personal message with all of you as well.

While we still have much exciting work ahead together, please take a moment to join us in thanking Marianna for her decade of service! We look forward to a high-impact final year of service as CEO, as well as her continued involvement as a member of the alumni community, friend of ANY, and champion for economic mobility.

Best wishes,

Jamie Sholem
Chair, ANY Board of Directors
