“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right” — Henry Ford
Diamond joined the City Academy team in August 2022, as the Administrative Coordinator. Diamond has over 10 years of experience working in the non-profit sector, wearing many hats such as an administrative assistant, vocational coach, youth leader, and more. Growing up in south city St. Louis, Diamond saw firsthand the need for inner city children to have access to better education and resources. She knows all too well what it feels like to have to wake up at 5 a.m. to take three buses to school, because the one across the street is underfunded and underwhelming. Diamond considers it a great honor to get to work with City Academy to ensure more children can receive an amazing education.
