Boston Arts Academy Foundation (BAAF) is pleased to announce that veteran television executive Maggie Baxter, Vice President of Programming for NBC10 Boston, NECN, NBC Sports Boston and Telemundo Boston, has joined BAAF’s Board of Directors.

Baxter, a Wellesley resident, has been a dedicated partner to BAAF for years. Her board election formalizes her commitment to the organization.

“I am proud to join the Boston Arts Academy Foundation board,” said Baxter. “BAA accepts students solely based on their artistic passion and talent. With the Foundation’s support, the school helps to close opportunity gaps for its diverse student body—which aligns with NBCUniversal’s goals of sharing the stories and voices of all our local communities. We are so proud to support Boston Arts Academy’s students and I look forward to providing guidance and resources to the school and Foundation.”

Baxter has significantly strengthened BAAF’s partnership with NBCUniversal, overseeing the promotion, production, and broadcast of BAA Honors 2021 this past May, the Foundation’s largest single source of unrestricted funding for the school. BAA Honors 2022 is slated for this upcoming May and will be a monumental event celebrating the grand opening of the new school building in Fenway.

“Maggie and her team pulled off what some said was impossible,” said BAA Foundation President and CEO Denella J. Clark. “While nonprofit organizations were not broadcasting events during the pandemic, Maggie made it happen. She is an ardent advocate for Boston Arts Academy’s students. As a member of BAA Foundation’s Board of Directors, she will continue to raise the bar for the Foundation and school’s visibility, relationships, and funding.”

In addition to Baxter, BAAF’s Board elected Ruth E. Carter, Academy-Award winning costume designer, and Jerome Smith, Senior Manager of External Affairs Policy at Amazon, as new members. They will serve alongside other civic leaders including Board Chairman and Avid Technology CEO Jeff Rosica.
