It’s been a busy summer here in our new offices.
Since moving into the building behind the Jones House in Boone (which we share with Appalachian Voices), we’ve hosted the 2012 High Country Farm Tour, food demo'd at the Watauga Farmer's Market, met the Seeds of Change steering committee and activity leads, and increased our staff size considerably.
Conyers Lamm, an MBA student at Appalachian State University’s Walker College of Business, joined us mid-July to provide administrative support for the Seeds of Change Appalachia Initiative. Conyers is concentrating in sustainable business, which makes her work with us beneficial in many aspects. The support Conyers is providing is critical to the success of this project, and we are thrilled to have her join the team.
A recent transplant from Massachusetts, Sarah Myers has been hired as our new Executive Director. In February, Sarah received her MBA in nonprofit management from Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy, and is very excited to be working with such a passionate and knowledgeable group of women. We are looking forward to having Sarah assist the organization as we progress through this period of growth.
