BRISTOL – Following a ca- reer of more than thirty years serving the boys, participants, and families of Mayhew – the last twenty as Executive Direc- tor – Jim Nute announces that he will be stepping down on De- cember 31st to spend more time helping and being with family.
Over his time with Mayhew, Jim has been a part of the pro- gram’s extension from a two-year experience to an eight-year expe- rience for the boys and its con- tinual evolution in their support. In his time as Executive Director, Mayhew has earned both state- wide and national recognition as a leading youth-serving organiza- tion.
In sharing his decision with the Mayhew community, Jim said, “I have been changed by these thirty years with Mayhew. The boys, families, staff, and trustees have taught me so much about being a professional, about being a good person – about living. I’ve tried to give back in kind. I hope I’ve been more successful than not.” [For Jim’s full message to the Mayhew community, please visit the Mayhew Blog, https://]
Board President Jim Fitts said of Jim’s transition, “Jim’s contri-
bution to Mayhew as its Execu- tive Director will be recognized as long as there is a Mayhew. When celebrating the accomplishments of the program over the past 54 years, Jim’s tenure as ED and Mayhew’s growth under his lead- ership will be acknowledged as the keystone to its future. Jim can- not be replaced, but the Board and staff will work tirelessly to- gether to create another era of excellence under new leadership. In his full message to the commu- nity, Jim notes the comprehen- sive evaluation being completed, which will inform and shape that future, and our commitment is to find the best leadership available to take us there. As difficult as it is to say goodbye to Jim, we wish him and his family the very best in their next adventure and know that he will be both helping and cheering Mayhew on as we build the next chapter.”
The Board, working closely with Jim, the staff, and others, is committed to ensuring this lead- ership transition maintains May-
hew’s strong present work for the boys, participants, and families while also preparing it for ever stronger and brighter service in the future.
Since 1969, Mayhew has been dedicated to helping deserving New Hampshire boys strive to- ward futures they’re proud of, where the focus is on family, community, and achievement. Mayhew’s work begins when a boy is 10 or 11 and continues through his high school gradua- tion; it includes a transformative summer program on Bristol’s Newfound Lake and regular mentoringthroughout the school year. It is only through the gener- osity of its family of contributors that Mayhew remains tuition-free for the boys.
Mayhew receives support from the Granite and Monad- nock United Ways – and so many other individuals, businesses, and organizations across New Hamp- shire. For more information, visit
