For nearly four years Pam Murray has been executive director for CARE with great success. On the heels of the CARE Breakfast at Frontiers of Flight Museum with Charles Haley last fall, she had undertaken the “first ever Youth Rally featuring Chris Herren” in April. But just before Christmas Pam told the CARE board that she had accepted a job offer from EnterHealth.
Sure the board was disappointed to lose her, but it was a great opportunity for Pam and she had helped CARE grow under her direction.
But what to do about a new executive director? The board decided to undertake a search to find just the right person. In the meantime, former Board Chair Jan Osborn will serve as interim executive director.
According to 2016 CARE Board Chair Paula Hayes, “CARE has experienced unparalleled growth in our programs and outreach over the past few years. At last count, CARE has served well over 60,000 families. Pam Murray has helped us achieve all of these goals and we are indebted to her for all of her dedication and hard work. We are supportive of Pam as she moves to her new job. At the same time, we are very excited that Jan Osborn will be leading our organization forward as we expand our footprint in the community, bringing education and hope to families struggling with addiction.”
