(KAIR)--A Horton woman is named Executive Director for the South Brown County Community Foundation.

Selected to fill the role is Ivy Stone, who a release says was born and raised in Horton, the daughter of Pastor Tom and Viki Stone, who graduated from Horton High School in 1998.

Stone, in the release, calls Horton "a very special place that gives small towns a good name," saying she's "thrilled to take on" the new role," adding that "acknowledging the good that is already alive and well in our community and working to enhance that good is something I’m excited to be taking on.”

Following college, Stone returned to Horton in 2018, where she is raising her three daughters.

Stone's hiring became possible after SBCCF "received a significant capacity building grant" from The Patterson Family Foundation, described in the release as a foundation that strives to help uplift rural communities through health care, education, and economic opportunity, with the release saying the "grant plays a crucial role in advancing SBCCF- strategic goals and expanding its capacity to address the evolving needs of the community."

The South Brown County Community Foundation was established in 2019 with a mission to improve the quality of life in South Brown County by increasing charitable giving, educating, and connecting donors to community needs in Horton, Everest, Willis, Powhattan, and the Kickapoo Nation Reservation.
