Candace Winkler Named CEO of Scholarship Foundation

The Scholarship Foundation announced this week that Candace Winkler ​— ​CEO of Alaska Community Foundation ​— ​will become its new CEO, replacing Colette Hadley, who has worked for the foundation for 22 years. A committee searched nationwide for nine months to find a new leader, and Winkler beat out 64 qualified applicants, according to Board Chair Janet Garufis. Founded as a very small nonprofit in 1962, the foundation flourished under Hadley’s tenure; the number of annual awards increased from 565 to 2,748 and the amount distributed grew from $591,000 to $8.6 million.
