LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#K12—Boxlight Corporation (NASDAQ: BOXL), a leading provider of interactive technology solutions for the global education market, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jim Clark to its board of directors.
Mr. Clark has served as the president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) since January 2012. He leads a network of 4,600 Boys & Girls Clubs that serves nearly 4.7 million young people annually in all 50 states and U.S. Territories – in large cities and small towns, in public housing and on Native lands – and on U.S. military installations across the globe. More than 50,000 professional staff members operate the Clubs, supported by some 285,000 board and program volunteers.
Mr. Clark has guided the organization through the launch of an exciting new strategic direction, the Great Futures Impact Plan. Under his leadership, BGCA Clubs are increasing the impact on the young people they serve by focusing on three priority outcome areas – academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
To ensure BGCA provides the best possible service to Clubs, Mr. Clark has spearheaded a major restructuring of the national organization. He has introduced innovative programming that supports the three outcome areas in ways that are fun and engaging, such as state-of-the-art STEM initiatives and Brain Gain, a program to combat summer learning loss.
