Changing of the Guard – Welcome to Our New Executive Director
The Texas Midwest Community Network entered another exciting chapter with the announcement of our new Executive Director during the recent Membership Meeting! Lori Dodd is no stranger to TMCN having been an active member from the City of Gorman and Past President of the Board of Directors. She currently serves as the Gorman EDC Director and mentored several students through our Leadership TMCN Program. Lori’s passion for rural life and her keen understand of the needs of our members will certainly ensure our organization’s continued growth and valuable programming!
We also recognized outgoing Executive Director Kathy Keane and wished her well in her upcoming retirement after almost thirteen years with our organization – eight years at the helm and five years on the Board of Directors. “Kathy has been an invaluable asset to the entire TMCN region, and while we are sad to see her leave the organization, we’re excited that she is embracing this time to fulfill aspirations with her family. On behalf of the TMCN Board of Directors and the entire TMCN region, I want to thank Kathy for her tireless dedication to our organization and wish her the best on her future adventures.”, Board President Erin Corbell.
As a fitting recognition of our next chapter, we were thrilled to capture this photo representing the leadership history of our organization – Nicki Harle, first Executive Director and Founder of TMCN; Lori Dodd; and Kathy Keane.
