OUR CEO

Art Serna began his career as a youth program coordinator and development professional. He spent a large part of his journey in community development and education working for children and families who are left behind or systemically barred from access to opportunities, in the US and abroad. He joined Teach For America in Oklahoma City as their Executive Director in 2016 as part of leading the expansion of their social entrepreneurship offering, alumni programming and learning around the intersection of education and economic mobility indicators. Art was appointed as the new CEO for City on a Hill in May 2021. To learn more about his background, read his profile: Art Serna

OUR FOUNDER

Diane has had an accomplished career in the health and community development sectors. She previously served as vice president of public affairs for Aurora Health Care for over 20 years. In 2003, she became the executive director of City on a Hill. In that capacity, she received numerous accolades for her leadership, including the Wisconsin Hero Award (2012) and was also honored as an Inspirational Leader in the Women of Influence program of The Business Journal. In April 2021, she stepped down from her role as executive director and continues to support the mission of City on a Hill by overseeing our major philanthropy work, our racial residue initiative, and the spiritual direction for our dinner church model.
