The Children’s Trust of Alachua County will hold two separate meet-and-greet events with the finalists for its open executive director position.  
The trust will hold the first event Monday, July 25, at 6 p.m. following a board meeting. The meeting is open to the public and will take place on the second floor of the Children’s Trust office at 802 NW 5th Ave. In Gainesville.  

The second public event is slated for Tuesday, July 26, at 2:30 p.m. Afterward, at 4 p.m., the finalists will give 30-minute presentations to the board and members of the community in attendance.  

Both parking and meeting space are limited for both events.

The two executive director finalists are Marsha Kiner, an executive director and CEO with the Association of Florida Colleges, and Kimberly Lancaster, a dean of academic affairs/campus administrator at Palm Beach State College.  

Alachua County residents voted to create the Children’s Trust in 2018 to provide children’s services in the county. It has a roughly $8 million budget, which is supported by taxpayers.  

The trust has been without a permanent head since March, when the board fired the executive director following accusations of misconduct. Kristy Goldwire has served as interim executive director while the board has conducted its search.
