Returning to higher education post

Resignation from PA LGBT Commission


In a Facebook post on Nov. 7 Todd Snovel, executive director of the Pennsylvania LGBTQ Commission announced he is leaving that post and returning to the field of education.

"The time has come to make an official announcement. Snovel's post noted. "While the last 15 months have included incredible growth, achievements, and bringing visibility of LGBTQ communities across the Commonwealth, they have also, at times, taken a mental and physical toll. After much reflection, I have decided to resign my position and head back to my first love of higher education, as the special assistant for Strategic Initiatives at PCA&D - Pennsylvania College of Art & Design.

"Eternally thankful to the commissioners, community partners, and colleagues who have supported me along this journey. And thanks to all of you for good thoughts, encouragements, and prayers as I embark on the next chapter!"
