This month brought several celebrations and transitions for your UWGK staff. Susan LaGuardia, Emily Merritt, and Becca Sutphen all celebrated 5 years of service with UWGK, while Danelle Glasscock marked her 10 year anniversary milestone.
The UWGK staff and volunteers also came together via Zoom to wish Susan LaGuardia a happy retirement as she culminates her decades-long career in service to the Greater Kingsport community. Prior to coming to UWGK, Susan served as the Executive Director of Kingsport Tomorrow for over 10 years in addition to her many years of volunteer community service and advocacy. Best wishes on a happy retirement, Susan!
Finally, Emily Merritt was promoted to the newly-created role of Director of Communications & Education. In this new position, Emily will continue to provide her leadership in our fight for the education of children & youth in our community, will grow our public-facing education on trauma-informed care, ALICE, and more, and will lead the strategic organizational communications for UWGK.
Congratulations to everyone on their accomplishments and dedicated service to UWGK and our community!
