Evans, a long-time marketing and communications specialist in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, is currently the executive officer for consulting firm Heart Touch. Evans previously worked locally as marketing director with Wounded Warrior Project. She also served three years as the marketing director for the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida.

Previously, Evans was a senior vice president at advertising agency BBDO. Later, she served as a managing partner and executive vice president at global marketing communications company Y&R, where she led communications and media agencies in 36 countries for Kraft Foods.

Evans has also served on many nonprofit committees and boards, including the Palm Valley Community Association, the Episcopal Parents’ Association Advisory Council, the Citizens Traffic Task Force and Yoga4Change – and takes great pride helping found the ‘Lead the Way Fund’ in memory of fallen U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. James J. Regan.

Pedro Menendez High School Principal Patrick (Clay) Carmichael has also been elected to the board. Carmichael has served as principal of the high School since 2007, where he developed the school’s International Baccalaureate (IB) program, its Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program, which is an in-school academic support program for grades 4-12 that prepares students for college eligibility – and created action plans that raised the Menendez High from a “D” rated school to a repeating “A” school rating.

Carmichael, who joined the St. Johns County School District in 1994, has provided successful and proven leadership at all three levels of public education. He previously served as principal at Fruit Cove Middle School and as assistant principal at Mill Creek Elementary School.

He has received multiple education certifications and accreditations throughout his career. Carmichael received his Doctor of Education from the University of North Florida, a Master of Administration degree from Valdosta State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida Agricultural Extension Service.
