La Crescent Community Foundation Welcomes Sean Dwyer to its Board of Directors, Thanks Ohm, Berns for Service
At its annual meeting on July 28, La Crescent resident Sean Dwyer was elected as a Director to the Foundation Board. Dwyer, who is the News Director at local ABC affiliate, WXOW TV-19, has been involved in a variety of area organizations and boards and will bring a great community perspective to the group.
For the 2016-17 fiscal year, the Board elected Linda Larson as its President, Steve Bissen as Vice President, and re-elected Paull Ulland as Treasurer, Anne Hendrickson as Secretary, and Cindy Wright was re-appointed to the Executive Committee. In addition, the Foundation thanked Past Presidents Jerry Berns and Bill Ohm for their years of service to the Board. Berns will continue on the Board as Past President, and Ohm will leave the Board for other opportunities after eight years of service and leadership. We thank all of the Board members for their work and contributions. We are also looking for community minded individuals with ideas and interest in becoming part of our board or serving on committees. Please contact us for details.
