Changes on MARRS
Board of Directors
At its June 2015 annual meeting the MARRS Board of Directors elected a slate of officers: Richard Caro, President; Judy Davis, Secretary; Phyllis Youngberg, Treasurer.
Isaac Coleman was elected Vice President. Among a number of other community service hats Isaac wears is that of founder and chairman of Read to Succeed Asheville.
Tyler Pittman had resigned the office of president early in the year due to the demands of a new job and a new baby in the family: Blythe Lucille, shown in photo in the arms of her proud “big” brother Connor.
Shirley Cohen has resigned from the board due to difficulties with transportation to the meetings.
And the board added a new member, Kathi Petersen.
“I am thrilled about the chance to volunteer with MARRS,” says Kathi. “As a public relations professional, I work with both print and broadcast journalists. Serving with MARRS allows me to draw upon this experience while helping those with visual impairments. Thank you for this meaningful opportunity.”
