Jennifer Ferre, program coordinator, has been named as interim director for WNC Communities.
Linda Lamp, who has served as Executive Director of WNC Communities for 13 years has accepted a position with the Southwestern Commission, a regional council of government that serves as a technical, economic, and planning resource to local towns and counties in the seven westernmost counties of North Carolina.
Jennifer will assume the role of interim director and operations leader, while other program leadership remains in place. She will continue to head the WNC AgOptions program in addition to the primary role of directing operations, while the board considers a more permanent process to fill the Executive Director position. “We are confident Jennifer’s leadership to our competent team, will provide the continuity and stability needed during this transition.” said L.T. Ward, Vice President.
