ISC Welcomes New President Michael Carson

ISC has a new president! We’re so pleased to welcome Michael Carson as the third president in our organization’s 51-year history. Michael, who relocated to Jonesborough from the Washington, D.C. area earlier this month, was born in Chicago and has extensive leadership and fundraising experience in the U.S., France, and Africa. Watch this space in the coming months for more about Michael and his vision for ISC.
