It’s official—the Black Diamond Community Service Center has a new coordinator. Jan Glasscock, who has served the center as outreach worker for the past 11 months, has been hired to fill the post through next April.

The selection is most appropriate as Jan is fully aware of the needs of the community and is dedicated to meeting those needs as well as is possible.

During the next seven months, she will attempt to initiate new programs, coordinate and meet the needs of the community, and carry on the center’s crisis, alcohol, and family problem counseling. Jan can also make referrals.

She will get a lot of support from Nonie Coby, Lee Lombardini, Mary Anne Lind, and Rose Murdock. (more…)
