Tammy Pearson serves as the director of Project Leadership, a non-profit organization serving East Central Indiana students and school systems in Grant and Delaware counties, providing college and career services recognized at the local and state level. Under Pearson’s leadership, Project Leadership has become increasingly focused on bridging the educational gap between affluent and low-income youths and on providing youths with needed tools to complete post-secondary degrees and credentials. Pearson leads Project Leadership through a desire to design and implement strong community programming that makes a measurable difference and creates a positive change for families in our communities.
Pearson joined Project Leadership in 2007 after working for several years as a journalist at community newspapers in Indiana. Pearson’s love of stories has translated into her current role through the privilege of walking alongside students as their stories are created. Pearson has earned the Child and Youth Care Certification, the most rigorous demonstration of competence in the field, and was a finalist for the Indiana Youth Institute’s Youth Worker of the Year in 2018.Share
