Shanta Lee Gander is stepping down from the Board of Directors after the October 4 Board meeting. Shanta Lee was appointed to the Board in January ’21 to fill the remainder of Grace Koch’s seat. As the indefatigable chair of the Board’s Community Engagement Committee, Shanta has been leading an ongoing “listening session” project to better connect the Co-op with the surrounding community. Of her Board service, Shanta says “one of the many things I am taking away is the depthless passion that you all have for our community and the sustainability of our Co-op, which has been inspiring.” A published author, Shanta is stepping down from Board service in order to devote more time to bringing her next book to fruition, as it was just picked up by a publisher. Shanta will be missed! As noted by fellow Board member Beth Neher, Shanta has brought “an energy, thoughtfulness and perspective that has benefitted our work”.
