Concord-based NHHEAF Network Organizations oversees programs and initiatives that support students pursuing higher education. The organization is comprised of three nonprofit agencies: the NH Higher Education Assistance Foundation, Granite State Management & Resources, and NH Higher Education Loan Corp. Following Rene Drouin, who recently retired from the post he held since 1997, Thornton will be the fourth president of NHHEAF.
Cornelius Joyce, chair of Granite State Management & Resources’ board of trustees, said, “With Christiana’s extensive experience directing the activities of the NHBA and its associated entities, as well as her legislative background, we are confident Christiana will continue to guide the organizations as the organization continues to support New Hampshire students pursuing higher education.”
The NEC congratulates NHHEAF on their new leadership and wishes Christiana the best in her new role.
