Sophia Lloyd, these past six years the executive director of the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation, is heading home. She is leaving the foundation this spring and moving back to Toledo, home base in one of the earlier phases of her interesting life. She'll do more good work, this time a government post focused on people in need.
In Oak Park and River Forest, Lloyd took a quieted community foundation and gave it focus and energy that were well synced with the values of this community: youth, environment, community leadership. It has been a nuanced approach and she deserves credit for her central role.
