The Stamford Public Education Foundation has announced a new director of programming in Wilton native Lindsay Wyman.

For more than 20 years, the Stamford Public Education Foundation worked with the public school system by providing programs and resources that encourage success by bridging the gap between school needs and community resources.

With more than 13 years as an educator at the elementary level, Wyman will oversee the foundation’s educational programming, which focuses on the areas of college and career readiness, enrichment, family and kindergarten readiness. She will also manage the foundation’s programs team.

A literacy specialist, Wyman’s career includes nine years at Eagle Hill School in Greenwich and then the King School. Her most recent role was as a literacy consultant on a national level, working in public and private schools nationwide to advise and revamp their literacy programs.
