Angelina College Launches Center for Nonprofit Leadership


Angelina College launched its Center for Nonprofit Leadership Wednesday, Sept. 26 at the AC Community Services Building.

The center was created to provide educational programs and support services to nonprofit organizations. It will provide training for both emerging and tenured leaders, as well as other resources tailored to serve the particular needs of nonprofit organizations. The center will maintain a “board bank,” a listing of individuals who are qualified and willing to serve with nonprofit organizations in East Texas.

Donna Busler will serve as Director of the Center for Nonprofit Leadership. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Texas A&M, and an MBA from Golden Gate University. Busler has served for more than 20 years in the nonprofit sector of Angelina County, most recently as executive director of The Mosaic Center.

“As a former Angelina College student and instructor, I am so thankful to join the AC team,” Busler said.
