Buffalo County Community Partners is rounding out their board with two new members: Marion McDermott, executive director of the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce, and Dr. Ken Shaffer, physician at Kearney Clinic.

“As a board member of Buffalo County Community Partners, I hope to gain knowledge about each of the various partnerships and apply that knowledge to strengthen the Bridges Out of Poverty coalition. Sustainable employment that provides a livable wage and safe, affordable housing are keys to the success of building a healthier community. Bridges Out of Poverty, with the assistance of Buffalo County Community Partners, is taking steps towards those goals,” said McDermott.

Community Partners would also like to thank board member Michelle Reed for her time serving, and wish her good luck as she moves forward to a new stage in her life. Thank you, Michelle. You’ve been a great board member and friend to us all!

Community Partners has two open spots left on the board in the following constituencies: “government” and “civic groups, churches, and consumers”. If you or someone you know would be interested in filling those spots, please email Denise Zwiener or call 308-865-2280.
