[AUG. 19, 2006]
The DeWitt County CIEDC resource specialist,
Debora Sullivan of DeWitt, is leaving her position at the CIEDC
outreach office in Clinton. Sullivan is moving out of state and
leaving her position after five years of serving the low-income and
elderly in DeWitt County.
As the DeWitt County resource specialist, Sullivan coordinated
school supply drives, Angel Tree toy distribution, holiday baskets,
commodity distribution and a food pantry. She also helped provide
rental assistance and other support to families in need.
Sullivan's position as a resource specialist required her to be
creative in finding resources for the low-income and elderly
residents of Clinton and other DeWitt County towns. She was an
active member of the community. Her involvement included the Poverty
Action Coalition and the United Way of Decatur.
Anita Russell of Clinton will be replacing Sullivan.
"Debra has been a great asset to CIEDC," said Kathy Shepherd,
community service program director. "I always had confidence that
the citizens of DeWitt County were being provided with the best
service because of Debra's commitment to her position and the people
of DeWitt County. I know that Anita will continue to provide a high
level of customer service to our families, and we look forward to
her joining the CIEDC staff."
