Homewood Children's Village head resigns

Posted by Elwin Green on September 26, 2014 at 9:35 PM

Homewood Children's Village President and CEO Derrick L. Lopez has resigned, the organization announced this evening.

 

An emailed press release from HCV said that Mr. Lopez is stepping down to complete his doctoral dissertation at Michigan State University, where he is studying educational policy.

 

Dr. Shannah Tharp-Gilliam has been promoted from Deputy CEO, and Director of Evaluation and Research, to interim President and CEO.

 

Mr. Lopez was HCV's first President and CEO, having served in that dual capacity since 2011.


In the absence of a standard file photo, we leave with this shot of Mr. Lopez, pre-HCV, at the Build Day for Homewood's first KaBoom! playground, in 2010:

The Homewood Chronicles

Oct. 2005 - March 2010

Reports from a community in transition

In October 2005, after a bullet came through his living room window, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Elwin Green began writing "My Homewood," the first blog on the P-G's website. For 4 1/2 years, "My Homewood" shared stories of tragedy and beauty, of perplexity and hope - stories that live again in "The Homewood Chronicles."
