Letter from Heart of Tennessee Regional COO, Greg King - July 2017

Heart of Tennessee Chapter,

Please join me in welcoming Kathy Ferrell as the new Executive Director for the American Red Cross Heart of Tennessee.  Kathy will assume her role on July 29th.   Kathy comes to us from St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital where she served as the Manager of Community Health and Benefit.  Kathy has, in her tenure with St. Thomas, managed the hospital’s volunteer program and secured a $500,000 grant to custom build a new Mobile Medical Unit.  Kathy is very active in the community, where she has received multiple service awards and served on the numerous boards.

Prior to joining the St. Thomas staff, Kathy was a member of the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, where she served as the Project Pass director.

Kathy brings exceptional relationship building skills and field experience to our Executive team and I look forward to watching her lead the Heart of Tennessee team into our second century.

On another note, the new fire detection system is currently being installed in the chapter office and should be the last hurdle, outside of the state inspection to be up and running.  Also, work is progressing on Broadmore Avenue and with some luck, hopefully we will have full use by August, making entry and exit easier.

We are looking forward to a great summer and hope to see many of you in the field or in the office over the next few months.

Greg King
Regional COO
