The KPFT community is saddened by the retirement of our long-time Development Director, Robin Lewis. Robin first got involved with KPFT in the early 2000’s when she helped with the efforts to craft new bylaws for the Foundation following the court decision of late 2001 in Oakland, California which created this new system of democratically-controlled people’s radio. She became the paid KPFT staff membership assistant and was responsible for maintaining our donor database, along with keeping up with getting all our donors their premium gifts from our fund drive activities.
Over a decade ago, Robin assumed the role of Development Director, a position from which she supervised the entire membership service arena, developmental efforts of various types, outreach activities too numerous to enumerate, and helped create, staff and develop events that benefited both KPFT and the Greater Houston region.
She leaves KPFT at a time of great challenge and transition, both internally and in our entire society. And while we regret her leaving and will miss her dearly, we wish her nothing but the best in all that life brings her way. We love you Robin!
