PBS Reno recently promoted Emma Glenn to the role of Vice President of Development, wherein she will oversee the nonprofit’s fundraising needs.

Glenn most recently headed the PBS Reno’s largest fundraiser, the 2021 Spotlight Awards and Auction, which resulted in $175,000 for the station’s educational outreach and local productions, according to an Oct. 4 press release.

“I am thrilled to move into this new role with PBS Reno as the Vice President of Development and further support and expand PBS Reno's mission and vision,” Glenn said in a statement. “The opportunity to work alongside such a talented, driven and creative team in this larger capacity is an honor. I am looking forward to working with the community and increasing support for PBS Reno's educational outreach in classrooms across northern Nevada and our award-winning local productions.”

Glenn joined PBS Reno as Grant Coordinator in 2018 and was promoted to Development Officer in early 2021. She has 12 years’ experience in fundraising, having previously worked in the education sector and with the Nevada Cancer Coalition. In 2010, she graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, where she majored in Fine Arts and Literature.

She replaces Peter Stanton, who left the role at PBS Reno in September.

“Emma’s performance in her time with PBS Reno have earned her this opportunity,” Mark Herron, Chair of the PBS Reno Board of Trustees, said in a statement. “Our donors and supporters, as well as our staff, will benefit from her knowledge, skill and leadership.”
