The Mill at Anselma, a 1747 national historic landmark in Chester Springs, has appointed Robert “Will” Caverly as its Executive Director.
Caverly earned a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from Villanova University. He joins The Mill from Ursinus College, where he was the Director of Corporate, Foundation, and Government Relations in the Advancement Office.
In his previous role, Caverly was responsible for the successful disposition of grant-seeking as part of a $100 million campaign. He made major inroads, obtaining funding and strengthening community relationships. His grant experience spans all stages from proposal to final report.
It is Caverly’s development and nonprofit experience that was sought by The Board of Trustees for The Mill’s future success and advancement.
His wholehearted belief in conservation and the value of preserving historic sites – combined with his interest in small-scale agriculture and The Mill’s role in the cultural understanding of America’s historic food systems – create an opportunity for The Mill to execute its programming and mission.
In addition to Caverly’s installment, the following members were recently elected trustees:
- Chair: Ernie Holling
- Vice Chair: Dave Rollenhagen
- Secretary: Steve Woodward
- Treasurer: Kevin Kerr
New board members include:
- Sarah Owens
- Matt Brown
- Kevin Kerr
- Dave Magrogan
The board expressed its appreciation for the nine years Tony DiFrancesco served as a trustee.
