CROSO's Board of Directors

These individuals passionately dedicate themselves to CROSO's mission. Board members are all volunteers and each serves on at least one committee. We are so grateful for the commitment and support of these board members!




Molly MacCready

Executive Director & Founder

Molly's desire to create CROSO stemmed from her study abroad experience in Uganda in 2006 where she had the opportunity to work with the street children's NGO, Child Restoration Outreach (C.R.O.). Molly went on to receive her B.A. in Psychology from the University of Dayton in 2008 and served for two years as a Marianist Volunteer in Karonga, Malawi. When she returned to the States, she pursued a master's degree in Public Health and graduated from the University of Illinois - Chicago in 2013.

She is grateful to have the support of such a talented and dedicated Board of Directors and looks forward to the continued development of CROSO. Molly is grateful to see the growth of the scholarship program and the impact that access to higher education has had on each scholar, our partner organization (C.R.O.), and the larger Ugandan community.
