Spaulding Youth Center Welcomes Back Hali Dearborn to Board of Directors

October 09, 2018

Spaulding Youth Center is pleased to announce Hali Dearborn has returned to serve on its board of directors. Mrs. Dearborn first joined the board in 2006 and has concluded a brief departure which began in late 2017.

In her previous tenure as a board member, Mrs. Dearborn led many initiatives that brought innovative and positive changes to Spaulding Youth Center, including co-chairing a successful $3.2 million capital campaign to build a new school on campus. In 2013, Mrs. Dearborn was elected Chair of Spaulding Youth Center Foundation Board of Directors. With the merging of this board with the Spaulding Youth Center Board of Trustees as of July 1, 2017, Ms. Dearborn continued to serve as Vice-Chair of the newly combined Board of Directors until her departure.

“On behalf of Spaulding Youth Center, I am thrilled to welcome back Hali Dearborn to our board of directors,” said Susan C. Ryan, CEO & President of Spaulding Youth Center. “Mrs. Dearborn made a significant impression on our organization when she first served on our board, and we are looking forward to the positive impact her skills, passion and dedication to our mission will make on our current students, staff and supporters.”

Ms. Dearborn is retired from EPTAM Plastics, a full-service precision machining company located in Northfield, NH. Although her relationship with Spaulding Youth Center was never truly concluded, she is looking forward to returning to the board of directors in an official capacity.

“The children of Spaulding need an abundant and supportive community now more than ever, especially with the ongoing opioid crisis and increasing number of trauma-related admissions,” shares Hali Dearborn. “I am excited to introduce other skillful and enthusiastic professionals and community members to an organization that can leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
