Two Rivers Chapter Welcomes Larry Crowell

The Two Rivers Chapter of the American Red Cross is pleased to welcome their new Disaster Program Manager, Larry Crowell. 

Larry will be responsible for the implementation of the disaster services program in the Two Rivers Chapter territory, while also working as a part of the Tennessee Volunteer Region.  He will lead and manage a volunteer team and will be responsible for the implementation of disaster preparedness, response and recovery programs in the local area.  He will also ensure the development of disaster leadership volunteers in each of the program support functional areas of the disaster cycle in order to meet the needs of the territory, region, state and division. 
“The Tennessee Volunteer Region is very fortunate to hire a Disaster Program Manager of his caliber,” said David Kitchen, Regional Disaster Program Officer.  “Larry recently completed his Bachelor of Science degree from Austin Peay State University in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security and he has a diverse nonprofit background and has also owned a variety of successful businesses.”

Having served as a Red Cross disaster volunteer for many years, and recently completing an internship working under his newly retired predecessor, Cecil Stout , Crowell has been well trained and prepared to successfully lead the Two Rivers Chapter Disaster Cycle Services department.  The Chapter serves residents in Benton, Dickson, Houston, Henry, Humphreys, Montgomery, and Stewart Counties as well as Ft. Campbell, KY and Land between the Lakes.
