Oldham hired as executive director of Mt. Vernon Education Foundation


The Mt. Vernon Education Foundation has hired Renee Oldham as its new executive director.


Oldham joins the MVEF from the City of Richmond, with a background in economic development. She has experience in capital improvement campaigns, raising more than $1.3 million for the creation of an innovation center in downtown Richmond. She’s also worked in small business development as well as grant writing.

Oldham and her husband relocated to the Mt. Vernon school district to be closer to her children and grandchildren. Her son’s family decided to send their children to Mt. Vernon, and Oldham has a son-in-law who graduated from Mt. Vernon High School.

“People at Mt. Vernon are extraordinarily dedicated to the students,” Oldham said. “Everyone has been warm and friendly. I am a huge believer in education and hope to create additional learning experiences that develop a passion for lifelong learning for students.”

As Oldham begins her tenure, the MVEF office is being relocated into the district’s administration building. Among the MVEF board’s goals is to build the district’s endowment and have a consistent annual campaign.
