OCTOBER BRINGS LEADERSHIP CHANGES TO THE CLUB
On October 1, 2018 the new Board of Directors was installed at a luncheon at the Chestnut Tree Inn. The Board consists of: President Benny Graves; Vice President Tara Reed-Cooper; Secretary Ashford Smith; Assistant Secretary Shelly Brown; Perry Shell; June Wolfe; Doris Johnson; Tiffani Reed; and Student Representative Dreyton Long. This Board’s term will end on September 30, 2020. The Board of Directors also appointed Greg Owle as the Interim General Manager so that the General Manager’s position could be advertised, applicants interviewed, and a General Manager hired. Greg was the Bus and Truck Department Manager. With this move, Beth Grant, Assistant Manager of the Bus and Truck Department, was named Acting Manager of the department. The Club’s HR Office is also back up and running with the return of Tiffani Reed.

BUS DEPARTMENT NEWS……
The Bus and Truck Department welcomes two new employees!
Welcome to Austin Fish from Haywood County! Austin will also be working with the Bus and Truck Department and the Mowing Crew/Labor Pool.
Welcome also to Tony O’Neal, a former long-term employee with Harrah’s who brings vast knowledge of the food industry (as a Chef)! Tony just passed his test for his “P” and “S” endorsements, so he will begin driving a school bus and charter bus today!
The Bus Department also has two interns from the Mother-Town Earth program with TERO. These two employees will be working primarily in the wash bay but will also be helping in the Bus Department office by answering the phone and radio. Their time with the Club will be for 90 days and they are paid through TERO. If any other department needs assistance that they can provide, contact Beth Grant at 359-5585; she is willing to share!
