Enep'ut Board of Directors

Enep’ut Children’s Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation governed by a board of directors. Enep’ut’s bylaws mandate that the board be composed of at least seven directors, and two directors of those seven will be staff advocates. Parents, staff, and interested community members are members of the corporation and vote on issues directed to the general membership. Directors are then voted in at the yearly fall membership meeting and appointments last one year. The current term began November 3, 2017. Parents and staff are encouraged to attend and participate in monthly board meetings. General board meetings will be the last Friday of each month from 6-8pm at Enep’ut starting in January. Please contact the Board of Directors at [email protected].

Kaniesha Radgosky, Secretary


Kaneisha is a purveyor of useless trivia who loves her family, dogs, and baking! In her spare time, she saves lives. One day she hopes to win each and every Scrabble game.




Heather Dorsett, Treasurer


Heather was 46 when her son (now a preschooler at Enep’ut) was born. Learning to take care of a baby was a big change! She’s learned a lot about how to go about it from observing the staff at Enep’ut, and she’d like to give back by helping to deal with administrative things so that the staff can focus on the children. Heather is amazed at how many childhood memories are coming back now that she has a child of her own—and she worries that she will never again stop hearing Schoolhouse Rock in her head!
