Herrera to retire from LANL Foundation

-A A +A

LANL > She was the founding director

Susan Herrera, the founding director of the 17-year-old Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation, has announced she is retiring at the end of this year, according to a news release.
Now serving as its chief executive officer, Herrera has led the foundation, which invests in education in seven Northern New Mexico counties, since 1998. During this time, the LANL Foundation has awarded more than $50 million in grants to public schools and nonprofits and currently has an endowment of more than $70 million.
Herrera first managed the fledgling foundation from the trunk of her car. Today the foundation owns its own office space in Española.
The LANL Foundation is now an operating foundation, managing its own programs. Under Herrera’s leadership, it inaugurated an Inquiry Science program, which teaches hands-on science in 11 school districts; has raised $4.5 million for college scholarships; and has been instrumental in creating a coalition of foundations to launch First Born home visiting programs for first-time families in 14 of the state’s 35 counties. All programs at the LANL Foundation are measured for effectiveness and potential enhancements by independent evaluation firms, according to a news release.
