2020 is rapidly, and thankfully, coming to an end. I’m hopeful that 2021 will be a far better year for everyone than we have experienced during many of the last few months. In light of new beginnings, I want to share with you the news of my retirement. I will retire January 4, 2021. Coming to this decision was not easy. Being a part of McClendon Center for 17 years has been a terrific time in my life. I have been privileged to work with so many wonderful clients and staff members. I have seen positive changes in the lives of so many of our clients. As I’ve told the Board of Directors, I feel like I have been the luckiest of Executive Directors. However, it’s time to move on to the next phase of my life. As I make that transition, McClendon Center will be in Shean Dyson’s very capable hands. Shean was appointed by the Board of Directors as the Interim CEO of the McClendon Center, with all legal authority for the agency to be conveyed to her on January 4th. It is a relief to me that Shean has agreed to do this, and I have full confidence in her to shepherd the agency until the new President and CEO is in place in early 2021. Candidates for the permanent position are currently being reviewed, and interviews will likely begin just after the holidays. The Board of Directors expects someone to be in the position around April 1st next year.
Once the pandemic is under control, we will have some sort of celebration of our time together. However I encourage you to join us for the Art of Appreciation, a virtual event, on December 9th at 6:30 pm. It will be an uplifting night that will include an art therapy demo, games, and prizes. This free event is our way to say thank you to you- our supporters. You have stood by MCC and our clients and we want to show you our appreciation. More information and details can be found here Art of Appreciation
As many of you know once you’re part of the MCC family you’re always a part of the family. So I will continue to support MCC and I hope you will do the same. The mission to prepare those recovering from mental illness to improve their quality of life continues. I may be moving on but our clients will still need our care and support.
