Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust has named its 18th class of Piper Fellows — five nonprofit leaders with diverse backgrounds eager to grow personally and professionally.

They are: Katie Cobb, president of Barrow Neurological Foundation; Trinity Donovan, CEO of AZCEND; Major Barbara A. Sloan, executive director of Phoenix Family Services at The Salvation Army; Meg Sneed, director of quality and data services at Fresh Start Women’s Foundation; and Kate Wells, president and CEO of the Children’s Museum of Phoenix.

A selection committee of four community leaders, including a Piper Fellow from a prior class, reviewed the applicant pool and made the 2018 Piper Fellow recommendations to Piper Trust’s Board of Trustees. The newly selected Piper Fellows will become part of the larger and enduring Piper Fellows network of 77 fellows doers to date.

“Piper Trust believes in supporting both the organizations working to create positive change and investing in the bold and talented people behind them,” said Mary Jane Rynd, president and CEO of Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. “We are pleased to provide this group of exceptional Arizona leaders the opportunity to meet with change agents across the country and expose them to new ideas, to grow professionally, and to strengthen resilience in our community.”
