A familiar face will return to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health as the local group changes management.
Cassandra Schwarz is no longer the foundation’s Executive Director after being hired by the Canadian Mental Health Association in Vernon.
Chair Wes Rogers says former ED Donna Grainger is filling in until someone is hired for the role.
Grainger retired in April last year, after 11 years of raising funds through the EKFH.
Schwarz then joined the foundation and helped complete their MRI campaign for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.
Rogers expects to have a new person in place for the role in the coming weeks.
