An Angola resident experienced in fundraising and nonprofit leadership has joined Boomerang Backpacks as the new Executive Director. Laura Macknick will serve the position after the previous director, Bill Stockberger, made a recent transition as Chief Fundraising Officer of the Steuben County YMCA.

Macknick began this week with the organization. She has spent her career in fundraising, communications and nonprofit management in both community organizations and higher education, most recently at Trine Universtiy as part of the development team.

Macknick earned her Bachelor of Arts from Purdue University in 2001 and her Master’s Degree from Indiana University in 2015.

Macknick also gives back to the community through volunteerism. She is a board member for the United Way of Steuben County, Angola Area Chamber of Commerce and the Purdue College of Liberal Arts Alumni Advisory Board.
