Leigh Swanson, member of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando, Fla., has been named Executive Vice President of Reformed Theological Seminary’s Orlando campus. She will oversee campus administration, community relations, and campus development efforts.
She previously served as Associate Dean of Students from 2012 until 2017, when she became Vice President of Community Relations. The Executive Vice President role reflects her work on behalf of the students, staff, and donors who are part of the growing Orlando campus. In 2018, she launched “Teaching Women to Teach” at the RTS Orlando campus. The program has since equipped scores of women in churches around the world.
“Over the past five years, Leigh Swanson’s leadership in development has resulted in significant growth in student scholarships and a number of important campus facility improvements,” said Scott Swain, RTS Orlando President. “In addition, she has taken on increased responsibilities in the president’s office, campus administration, and financial aid. Her new role and title are meant to recognize her excellent service in all these areas.”
Swanson is a former member of the EPC’s National Leadership Team. Her husband, David, serves as Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando.
