The Central East Region has some staffing changes we want to announce.
First we want to welcome Amy Kent, our new CER Events Coordinator, who started work on January 2nd. Amy is a committed Unitarian Universalist, who has a passion for planning and organizing events and programs. She has spent the past 5 years working in workforce development, helping individuals in the Allegheny County Jail get training and jobs in the manufacturing sector. Her belief in the inherent worth and dignity of everyone was a guiding force in working with individuals overcoming several barriers. Before that position, Amy worked as office manager, church administrator and even travel agent. She is the mom of a high school senior who along with her husband have raised UU at the South Hills UU Church in Pittsburgh.
She has taught RE, chaired the service auction and served on the board of trustees. Active at Summer Institute, a UU week long family camp, Amy was on the planning committee, served as chair and most recently has been registrar. When Amy isn’t working she loves sports, Broadway musicals and travel.
So welcome to Amy! You can find her contact information on her UUA webpage.
And with the welcoming of Amy, we say good-bye to Sue Tabone, our regional administrator. Sue started out as the District Administrator for the St. Lawrence District and moved into the regional position after the regionalization vote in 2016. She is retiring to spend more time with her family, enjoy her garden and several other things - her list keeps growing!
We say a very warm thank you to Sue for her years of service and we very warm welcome to Amy as she joins our work.
