Memphis Talent Dividend and Graduate Memphis have a new director

The Memphis Talent Dividend and Graduate Memphis have a new director.

She’s Bernice Butler, who’s joined Leadership Memphis as director of those two efforts following nearly two years as a Fellow with the city of Memphis’ Strong Cities, Strong Communities program.

Those efforts are working to increase college attendance among the city’s high school graduates. Graduate Memphis ,funded by a grant from The Plough Foundation, is focused on increasing the rate of return to college by local adults who started college but never finished.
