Kemmerer Village Inc. Announces Transition
Assumption, IL – Mary “Lynne” Cleverdon, President of the Kemmerer Village Board of Directors announced the retirement of Michael A. Havera from the Executive Director position effective July 1, 2015.
“The Board of Directors of Kemmerer Village wishes to express our gratitude to Mike for his 30 years of unconditional dedication and stalwart leadership of this agency. Under Mike’s guidance the Village has flourished in all aspects of its mission: from the number and quality of programs serving children and families, to the campus’ infrastructure, to the raising of funds needed to support both current and future programming.”
“Over the years, Mike’s experience and leadership have proven invaluable in facing the unique and sometime arduous challenges that occur in the field of Child Welfare. Within the past several years, one of the bigger challenges has been that of stagnant or decreased State funding to the Child Welfare sector. Yet operational costs rise each year. These conditions underscore the importance of the agency’s fundraising efforts.”
“Therefore, I am pleased to announce that Mike has agreed to continue his affiliation with Kemmerer Village as the Director of Financial Development and the Kemmerer Village Foundation, also effective July 1, 2015. In this position, Mike will focus his considerable abilities and efforts on fundraising in order to support the excellent work our staff do with the children and the families entrusted to our care.”
