Agassiz Baldwin Community Announces New Executive Director
February 23, 2015 – 1:05 pm | No Comment

After more than 30 years heading the Agassiz Baldwin Community (ABC), Executive Director Terry DeLancey is retiring. Maria LaPage, ABC’s current Director of Children’s Programs, has been named as the new Executive Director effective July 1st. Through its many programs, ABC provides essential services to families and organizations throughout Cambridge, and community leaders have expressed both gratitude for DeLancey’s years of service and enthusiasm for LaPage’s appointment.

“We are truly excited about this dynamic transition,” say ABC Board Co-Chairs Miriam Goldberg and Andrea Walsh. “We believe that Maria is uniquely suited to lead the agency with the same care and attention as has been our tradition.” LaPage graduated from Beloit College and worked as an elementary school math teacher before joining ABC in 2008. LaPage has contributed a number of creative innovations to the agency, and she has worked to integrate ABC’s Afterschool and Outback Summer Program with Maud Morgan Arts. She is currently completing a certificate from Boston University’s Institute for Non-Profit Management and Leadership.

Since 1981, DeLancey has guided ABC through many changes, including establishing ABC’s non-profit status, the purchase of the property at 20 Sacramento Street, and the founding of Maud Morgan Arts. Over the coming months, DeLancey and LaPage will work together to ensure a smooth transition for ABC’s programs and for the agency’s network of connections with other non-profits, businesses, and city departments.

A community reception to honor both DeLancey and LaPage will be held at the ABC Annual Meeting on May 12th. The Agassiz Baldwin Community is a private, non-profit organization that has provided community-based, citywide programs with a focus on children, arts and community for over forty years.
