On September 30, Mr. Mark Williamson will officially hand over the Director of Economic Assistance Eligibility title to Ms. Sharon Butler.

Sharon has a vast amount of knowledge and expertise to bring as EAE's new director. She began with the Department of Human Services in 1990 as an eligibility worker, and she has since held many positions. Such as therapist, Executive Director of Community Youth Services at a non-profit that she founded, Contract Analyst, Marketing Director, Director of the Medicaid Waiver program, County Director for Lowndes County, and Regional Director of Region V.

We look forward to seeing what she does with EAE.
