Aurora Educational Strategies, the leader in accelerated learning, has named Neal Howard as their new Vice President of Development.
In his new position Mr. Howard will be responsible for leading the sales and marketing teams, producing events, and establishing and maintaining relationships with parents of students, and corporate sponsors.
“Aurora’s needs-based and merit-based scholarship programs are innovative and have been very successful. The Aurora Day School is growing exponentially, and we are committed to making even more scholarship dollars available to our students for the coming school year,” said Kellie Huff, Aurora Strategies’ CEO and founder of the Aurora Day School. “Our success in helping students with learning challenges gain 2-6 years in development during each school year is a model that Aurora is extending to more families. Mr. Howard’s skills and experience are an important part of that.”
“One source of funds that Aurora has been successful in distributing to our students comes via tax credits from individuals and corporations. Taxpayers get dollar-for-dollar tax-credits and Aurora families receive scholarships that help their children succeed academically and beyond,” said Mr. Howard. “It’s a win-win for everyone.”
Before joining Aurora Strategies, Mr. Howard ran a successful entertainment company, was a small business coach, speaker, consultant, corporate trainer to many fortune 100 companies, and produced business workshops in the Atlanta area. Mr. Howard is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
Neal and his wife Paula live in Roswell, Georgia and have one son, Myles.
“As a father of an incredible little boy with special needs, I know there is nothing more important than finding the right tools to help children and young adults who may learn differently, be able to succeed,” said Mr. Howard. “I’m proud to be joining the Aurora team, and to be part of the very real success that Aurora makes possible for so many families.”
