MISBO Announces Support for MehtaCognition's Impact Fund, Empowering Independent School Leaders Through Professional Development 

Marietta, GA, March 28, 2028 – In a move towards bolstering professional development opportunities for leaders in independent schools, MISBO proudly announces its financial support for MehtaCognition's Impact Fund.

Launched in Spring 2024, this groundbreaking initiative, spearheaded by Nishant Mehta, Founder and President of MehtaCognition, endeavors to eliminate financial barriers hindering the growth and advancement of independent school leaders. By allocating a portion of its net profits each year, MehtaCognition aims to address the financial constraints that hinder independent school leaders from accessing valuable resources for professional development. “People took a chance on me when I wasn’t so sure about myself, mentors who took time and attention to guide me, peers and teachers who made me a better person, teacher, and leader of others. I’ve tried to do the same for others every chance I get,” said Mehta.

Damian Kavanagh, President and CEO of MISBO, remarked about his support: “At MISBO, we recognize the power of mentorship and investment in others. The Impact Fund aligns perfectly with our mission providing members three main benefits, purchasing consortium + professional development, + networking. By endorsing the Impact Fund, we're not only investing in individuals but also in the future success of independent schools."

Anita Pittman, Chair of the MISBO Board, added, "We are excited to see the positive impact of this initiative. This partnership exemplifies MISBO’s commitment to developing a culture of life-long learning with as many independent school leaders as we can.”
