Both organizations are dedicated to supporting the youth of Kent County and providing them with the exposure and fundamentals to help them reach their maximum potential.

Wendy Costa

I have been involved in education most of my adult life, as a parent, as a community college teacher in four states, as the national coordinator of a teacher education project, as a school board member, as the director of a community-wide literacy project, and as a member of the founding team of a successful charter high school in California. Currently, I am the education coordinator at Mount Harmon Plantation in Cecil County.

My family has been in Kent County since 1969. Although I lived for many years in Texas and in California, I was always happiest when I came for summer visits on the Sassafras River, and I was thrilled to move to Kent County year round in 2004. Now I live on the upper Chester River, where I lead kayak excursions for small groups.

I graduated from Vassar College and earned a Master's degree in History from Columbia University. Many years later I earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of California, Davis. I have three sons and a grandson.
