Enlow Named Executive Director of Friedman Foundation

Published February 1, 2004

Robert C. Enlow, executive vice president for programs and development for the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation Inc., has been named executive director of the foundation. His new responsibilities include expanded management of the foundation’s programming, communication, and development efforts, as well as oversight of various school choice efforts currently underway in 17 states.

The foundation, called “the nation’s leading advocate of vouchers” by the Wall Street Journal, was established by Nobel laureate Dr. Milton Friedman and his wife Dr. Rose D. Friedman in 1996 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the role competition plays in achieving real K-12 education reform. Enlow will continue working directly with the Friedmans to ensure the foundation’s progress.

“The Friedman Foundation is deeply committed to the proposition that all parents–regardless of creed, color, or economic circumstance–should have equal access to educational options for children,” said Enlow. “All parents want the best and deserve the best education for their children.”

Announcing the promotion on December 8, the foundation’s president and CEO, Gordon St. Angelo, said the move would expand Enlow’s influence within the local and school choice communities.

Before joining the newly created foundation in 1996, Enlow lived in London, England, where he served as a deputy day center manager, social worker, and volunteer coordinator for St. Botolph’s Project, a homeless assistance organization. He also attended Oxford University, pursuing a graduate degree in theology. A native of Evansville, Indiana, Enlow currently resides in Indianapolis with his wife, Wendy, and their two children, Jefferson and Charles.
