|Perkins County Health Services Foundation Board has positions available|
By Jan Rahn
During the first week of January two positions on the Perkins County Health Services Foundation Board will be filled.
The commissioners will make the appointments for three-year terms during their meeting Jan. 3.
Positions currently held by Michele Cutler of Elsie, who represents District I, and Roxie Lampmann of rural Grant in District III, will be made by appointment.
Due to term limits, Lampmann will no longer be eligible for reappointment.
Cutler is completing her first term which makes her eligible for reappointment.
Anyone who lives in either of these districts is eligible, and if interested in serving on the PCHS Foundation Board, should make their desire known to one of the county commissioners or to the county clerk.
The foundation board also has representatives from the hospital board, and one of those positions is expiring at the end of the year.
Bob Cummings currently represents the hospital board on the foundation and will either be reappointed or replaced pending a hospital board decision in December. He has represented the hospital board to the foundation board for two terms.
Also representing the Perkins County Health Services Board to the foundation board is Brenda Kiolbasa who has two years left in her current term.
Nita McGreer serves as board member at large on the foundation board, however, will not continue her position due to plans for moving away from the area. According to foundation bylaws, the hospital board appoints the member at large, however, their selection cannot be a member from the hospital board.
Other hospital board members include Lori Day of Madrid, Diana Maupin of Venango, and Kenny Wykert and Dan Wallin of Grant.
More information about the positions may be obtained by calling any board member or PCHS Foundation Administrator Ron Patrick.
