April 22, 2013: If you have telephoned the Board office in the last year, you may have noticed the absence of the Board’s long-time Executive Director, Karen Ewing.
Ms. Ewing became seriously ill last spring, and so far her condition has not responded to multiple treatment plans.
The Board, and Karen, recently came to the reluctant conclusion that Karen would be unable to return to her current job duties.
We are currently conducting a national job search for a new Executive Director. Until the new Director is hired and trained, Carol Youtz will continue to fill in as the Acting Executive Director, a job she has performed since July 2012.
Many, many thanks are due to Ms. Ewing for her years of dedicated service to the Board and the people of Idaho. The Board can find a new Executive Director, but will never be able to find another Karen Ewing.We wish her well in her continued recovery efforts.
