Deer Park, NY - February 23, 2017 - Girls Inc. of Long Island is pleased to announce a new leadership team with Renee Flagler as the Executive Director and Barbara Joy Beatus as Associate Director. Together, Renee and Barbara bring over a decade of experience in youth and nonprofit development to the organization.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors of Girls Inc. of Long Island, we are thrilled to welcome Renee Flagler and Barbara Beatus as our new Executive Director and Associate Director," says Board Co-Chairs Ryan Reilly and Kathy Wisnewski.
