July 30, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) announced that it has entered an agreement with the Urban League of Metropolitan Denver (ULMD) to provide a loaned executive to the organization to support its important mission of helping African Americans and other residents of metro Denver attain job training and educational achievement. Syl Morgan-Smith, a 29-year NREL employee who currently manages NREL’s diversity outreach programs, became ULMD’s development director effective June 7. “The Urban League is a vital organization in our community and our decision to support its continued growth is one way that NREL can continue to give back to this community,” said Kerry Masson, NREL director of public affairs. “Education is a high priority for NREL, and the Urban League’s education and training programs will help us and other corporations who are interested in developing new workforce talent. Syl’s desire to help the Urban League and her experience in public relations make her the perfect candidate for this new assignment.” Landri Taylor, president & CEO of the Urban League of Metropolitan Denver said, “We are ecstatic to have Ms. Syl Morgan-Smith join us as Director of Development as part of NREL's Executive-on-Loan program. In this new position she will assist us in a very significant way to build more financial support and sponsorship for the local Urban League’s direct services, advocacy and public policy research. NREL's on-going commitment to the Urban League exemplifies their core value of community service, which is shown by their corporate social responsibility deeds. We hope other companies will follow their lead, and we deeply appreciate their very valuable assistance.”
