John McLain

Academic Grants Program Manager, Evergreen

John has served Evergreen for eleven years managing academic grants, and thus has been part of supporting SPP for that long. He partners with SPP staff to shape proposals, and maintains good relationships with our funders.

He is most interested in the personal stories: stories of individuals and how a program restores lives. John sees value in collecting testimony on the programs’ importance. Also, he would like to make SPP’s efforts part of the broad discussion about corrections: how do we want SPP’s model to inform the evolution of corrections nationwide?
