Mama Sharyce Bond

Hello, I’m Sharyce M. Bond, Director of Finance and Compliance for the Institute of Positive Education and New Concept School.


As a student at Chicago State University, pursuing a B.S in Accounting, I was required to complete a community service project with The Institute of Positive Education/New Concept School. After the program ended in Spring of 2011, I took a position as Program Support. Over the past 10 years, I’ve interacted with students, parents, and administrators. I’ve had the opportunity to gain great experience and knowledge that has rewarded me with many opportunities since the community service project. I look forward to exploring more avenues while gaining greater knowledge and contributing to the growth of this program.
