Paige Kimball Terry – LCCA Liaison & Executive Director of the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce Foundation

The Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni Association is pleased to announce
Paige Kimball Terry as the new LCCA Liaison & Executive Director of the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Both LCCA & the Chamber Foundation are excited about Paige’s new energy, skills, and ideas that she brings to the table. Her proven track record for implementing new programs and fundraising initiatives will allow both entities to continue and expand their leadership and entrepreneurship programs in Corpus Christi.

Paige previously served as program manager for Junior Achievement of the Coastal Bend, the local chapter of a worldwide nonprofit that provides economic education programs to K-12 students. As head of programs at JA, Paige was able to increase the number of students served in the area by more than 50% — from 13,000 to more than 20,000 students expected to receive JA programs in 2014-2015.

“We are very excited to have Paige on board. She is a graduate of Leadership Corpus Christi, helped chair the development of the What’s up Corpus Christi? app and has experience managing large special events and implementing economic programs,” said LCCA Chair Kimberly DeVisser.
