Shannon Jones to Serve as Executive Director of Groundwork Ohio


Groundwork Ohio is pleased to announce the appointment of Shannon Jones as its Executive Director.

“Shannon joins Groundwork with an impressive background in policy and legislative advocacy,” said Robyn Lightcap, co-chair of Groundwork Ohio. “As a former member of the Ohio Senate and House of Representatives, she has extensive, bipartisan relationships and legislative know-how that will serve the organization well.”

“I am very excited to be working on behalf of Ohio’s youngest children,” said Jones. “As a former legislator, I know that Ohio’s economic success is dependent on quality investments in early education. Groundwork’s Steering Committee is filled with highly-respected professionals committed to kids’ success. I’m looking forward to working with them to secure Ohio’s future.”

Prior to joining Groundwork, Jones served as an Ohio State Representative and State Senator, where she was chosen by her colleagues for key leadership posts in both chambers. She is the only woman in her party, and the first in Ohio history, ever to achieve that distinction. Her public service includes leadership and management roles at the federal, state, and local levels.

“Shannon’s passion for and knowledge of early childhood issues makes her well-suited to lead Groundwork as we refine our policy agenda and create a vision for Ohio’s youngest children,” added Stephanie Byrd, co-chair of Groundwork Ohio. “We are confident that she will take our advocacy to the next level.”.
