Dear Richmond Promise Community,

I hope this finds you well. 

I wanted to reach out to you directly to share the news that after 5 and a half years of helping to build the Richmond Promise, I’ve decided to transition from my role as Executive Director. Personally, professionally, and for the organization, the time is right and I am working alongside our board and team to actively transition leadership to guide the organization in this next chapter focused on sustainability and with shared proximity to our student and Richmond community. We are in an incredibly strong place with our existing team, program, and organizational strategy, and I have full confidence RP will continue to grow and thrive in this next chapter of new leadership. 

It has been the privilege of a lifetime to contribute to the founding of the Richmond Promise and its growth toward our mission of being so much more than a scholarship, but a community rooted movement to build a college-going and graduating culture here in Richmond that invests in the next generation of leaders for our City. I love the work, but it has really been the people - working alongside such an amazing and dedicated team, and community of partners, funders and growing community of Scholars (1900+ and counting!) and I want to thank YOU for the confidence you placed in me and what we are building here at RP.  

My last day with Richmond Promise will be October 1. Applications for the role are currently being accepted up to Friday, September 10.  As a resident of Richmond, I look forward to continuing to be a champion for the work because I really believe we're building something special together and I can’t wait to see what is to come for the Promise. 

We will look forward to introducing you to our new leader soon and continuing our work together for Richmond Scholars.

Thank you for everything!



Jessie Stewart 
Executive Director

    Investing in cryptocurrency, as lucrative as it could be if you got the right sources guiding you through , could be dangerous if you fall in the hands of online reapers. I lost some crypto assets to fake binary account managers promising false ROI which lured me into the investment. Thankfully I got referred to [email protected]COM , this recovery agent helped me recover all I lost by tracking the addresses I made deposit to after providing him necessary details which he ran my recovery programme with . Contact QUADHACKED VIA GMAIL today if you are seeking cryptocurrency recovery, they are reliable and trustworthy

    Some experts say you should only refinance a mortgage when you can get the mortgage company to lower the interest rate shorten your loan term or both, Thankfully I got in contact with Elitecreditandinvestment via gmail {[email protected]} after reading a review about this amazing team on a credit blog, this credit repair team helped me delete hard inquiries , and some negative blemishes on my credit report and also increased my credit score. I’m now scoring 769 by refinancing programs I got by [email protected] , anyone out there seeking credit repair services and loan  refinancing and application guidance should contact this credible credit service team

    CYBERCREDITGURU has been amazing to work with! They have creative, knowledgeable professional hackers that make the entire process a great experience. I am a widow with 3 children. I started working with CYBERCREDITGURU two years ago when I had a very poor credit score of 403, with negatives, late payments and evictions. I couldn’t afford a loan to even pay off my basic bills for the up keep of my children. Life was so terrible then. I came across a highly rated reviews about them online and I contacted them on CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM and phone/text: +1 (650) 439 0624. Lo and behold they got my FICO score raised to 805 and every other negative item cleared within 6 days after following all instructions. Last week I contacted them again for my daughter’s school grade and they got it upgraded excellently within 3 days. I recommend CYBERCREDITGURU to all who have hacking related issues. They are the BEST!

    Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
