Lancaster Education Foundation Announces the Hire of New Executive Director

The Lancaster Education Foundation has hired Angela M. Trout as its new Executive Director after a 16-month search.

Trout was previously the Executive Director for the Ephrata Area Education Foundation. She is a 1986 graduate of J.P. McCaskey High School and attended Lafayette Elementary and Wheatland Junior High schools.

“I am a proud product of the School District of Lancaster, so it’s amazing to be back in the city to help advance education for LEF.” Trout said. “And I look forward to strengthening our relationship with the school district and to continue LEF’s positive impact on all of our students, K-12.”

With over 12-years-experience in non-profit work, Trout served as the Communications & Events Manager at YWCA Lancaster and the Development Director for Conestoga Valley Christian Community Services.

She lives in Akron with her husband Matthew and son, Kolten.

Best wishes to our scholarship recipients and ALL McCaskey graduates
