Stacy Wall Schweikhart has been named Chief Executive Officer of Learn to Earn Dayton and will assume full-time responsibilities August 1, 2022.
“We’re thrilled to share that Stacy Wall Schweikhart will be Learn to Earn Dayton’s new CEO,” said Colleen Ryan, Chair of the Learn to Earn Dayton Board of Trustees. “Stacy has deep roots in the Dayton community and a distinguished 20-year career in public service. We’re excited about her breadth of experience, and her knowledge of the region will be an incredible asset.”
"I am honored to join the Learn to Earn Dayton team," said Schweikhart, who currently is the Director of Strategy and Engagement at the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission. "I have dedicated my career to building community with an intentional focus on public engagement. With our immensely talented staff and dedicated Board, I look forward to advancing Learn to Earn’s commitment to reducing disparities in education outcomes and fostering success for all children in Montgomery County.”
At MVRPC, Schweikhart convened partners and led planning processes around regional economic development, livable and equitable communities, broadband and digital equity, air and water quality, environment and sustainability, and transit and mobility. She was intensely involved in the region’s disaster relief efforts following the 2019 tornadoes.
Before coming to MVRPC in 2019, Schweikhart held various leadership positions in her 18 years of service to the City of Kettering. She earned a Master of Arts in Public Administration from the University of Dayton, and she has a certified planner distinction from the American Institute of Certified Planners.
Schweikhart succeeds Dr. Thomas J. Lasley II, who was Learn to Earn’s first CEO and who returned to that position on an interim basis following the resignation of Kristina Scott in March. Lasley will be joining the Montgomery County Educational Service Center where he will assume responsibilities for education policy and advocacy work.
