Parker named Meals-on-Wheels interim executive director
Lindsay Parker has been named the interim executive director of Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties, the organization's board of trustees has announced.
She has served during the past three years as controller for Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties.
A search is ongoing to find a new executive director, following the July resignation of Vinsen Faris. He had served in the position since 1988. Faris has accepted a position as chief executive officer with Christian Senior Services, the senior meals program of San Antonio.
“We are confident in a smooth transition as we conduct our search for the next executive director," said Paula Baucum, board chair of Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties. "Ms. Parker and our incredible staff will ensure our organization continues to meet the needs of our homebound clients in Johnson and Ellis Counties.”
Among her duties, Parker will be asked to ensure the success of the organization's major fundraiser.
“We are ramping up for our annual golf tournament [Sept. 15] and with Lindsay at the helm we will maintain positive momentum,” Baucum said.
A public reception for Faris will take place from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 18, at Lost Oak Winery.
