The Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation has had changes in board leadership.

As of June 30, 2017, three of the Foundation’s Board members, Art Green, Jim Corum and Kerri Pidcock-Lester, have concluded their terms and retired from the Board.

“We are very fortunate to have had Art, Jim and Kerri serve on the Foundation’s Board of Directors with their combined knowledge, expertise and love of the communities we serve,” Foundation President Dave Kraybill said.

Green held the title of Foundation’s Board Chair from July 2014- June 2017. In his nine years on the Board, he has served on the Executive, Strategic Planning, Marketing/Communications, Grants and Impact Committees.

“Art is a tireless advocate for Pottstown and its economic future,” Kraybill said. “His multi-faceted professional background and insight was an asset to the board.”

Kerri Pidcock-Lester served as a Foundation board member for six years, sitting on both the Grants and Nominating Committees.

“Kerri is a heart for the people of Pottstown,” Kraybill said. “Her passion and unique perspective as a leader in the religious community was invaluable.”

Jim Corum served on the board for three years, offering his expertise on both the Nominating and Marketing/Communications Committees.

“A leader in community connectivity, Jim’s enthusiasm and love of Pottstown is unwavering” Kraybill said. “His zest for life is infectious and he truly walks the walk when it comes to our mission of leading a healthy lifestyle.”

Kraybill expressed gratitude to the three retirees for their time, efforts and contributions to the organization over the years.

“Oh behalf of the Foundation’s Board and staff, we thank Art, Kerri and Jim for their years of service and wish them all the best in their future endeavors,” Kraybill said.

In June, the Foundation’s Board of Directors welcomed Dana Corp. Plant Manager Danny Aaron who will serve on the Grants Committee and retired Pottstown School District Superintendent

“We welcome Danny and Jeff to our Board and look forward to the valuable insights and professional experience they will each bring to the table,” Kraybill said.

Roberts School District Superintendent Myra Forrest serves as Chair of the Board with Todd Alderfer as Vice Chair and Matt Cappelletti continuing in the role of Treasurer.
