Jill Lum | Newton Education Foundation Board

Jill has taught in public (APS), private and international schools, directed service-learning programs, and served as a school chaplain. Ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and faith-rooted, she has served the wider community through anti-racism efforts, ministries with people living on the margins, participatory grant-making, group facilitation, and healing relationships among unlikely partners. Her family has had roots in Newton County for generations. She believes in “getting curious”- by seeing and engaging peoples’ gifts, and listening to and valuing lived experiences, communities can generate enough hope and honesty to mend what is torn, and keep going with the hard work of change.
