Greater Texas Foundation today announced that Dr. Wynn Rosser has resigned from his role as president and CEO effective August 31, 2016. Rosser, who joined the foundation as executive director in 2007 and was promoted to president and chief executive officer in 2012, will be going to the T.L.L. Temple Foundation. He will serve as president and CEO of the Lufkin, Texas based foundation beginning September 1.
Rosser’s deep commitment to education will continue at his new role at T.L.L. Temple Foundation. The foundation, which was founded in 1962, supports education, health, community and social services primarily in deep east Texas.
The board and the staff are indebted to Rosser for his leadership over the past ten years and the guidance he has given them in promoting and carrying out the foundation’s mission to ensure all Texas students are prepared for, have access to, persist in, and complete a postsecondary education.
In the coming months GTF will conduct a search for a new leader. Dr. J. Malon Southerland, Chairman of the Board of Greater Texas Foundation, will serve as its interim chief executive. The board and staff at Greater Texas Foundation are dedicated to the foundation’s mission and keeping the foundation running smoothly until a new leader is selected.
