Antionette Kerr reflects on how her ZSR sabbatical allowed her to come back to work with an all around better perspective.
2015 marked the 25th anniversary of ZSR's Sabbatical Program. Through the Sabbatical Program, ZSR honors leaders of nonprofit organizations across the state for their dedicated service and commitment to the sector. Every other year, the Foundation provides up to five recipients with $30,000 to take an extended break from work to focus on their personal needs, self-growth and self-revitalization in order to return to their organizations with a rejuvenated spirit and renewed sense of focus.
