Meet Josh Reimnitz,
Interim Executive Director
As we work to strengthen our programming and better serve our students and teachers, Breakthrough Twin Cities is undergoing a leadership transition. As of September 15, Mikisha Nation has exited her role as executive director of the organization. Josh Reimnitz has joined the team as interim to sustain our momentum as a strong program for students, families, and the larger Twin Cities community. The Breakthrough Board of Directors will conduct a comprehensive search for new permanent leadership in conjunction with a strategic planning process already underway. We look forward to exploring ways to serve increasing numbers of students and aspiring teachers in the Twin Cities community.
