As executive director, Sexton will oversee the day-to-day operations and management of the Community Action Partnership to meet the requirements and guidelines of funding sources and the ever-changing needs of the agency’s program clients.

He will also be working closely with the governing board of directors to promote, achieve and maintain the mission and promise of Community Action.

"I look at this as an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself," said Sexton.
