CRS Hires New Executive Director

November 2019

The new Executive Director is a familiar face around CRS.  Long-time employee, Pam Ohradzansky, has been chosen as the permanent Executive Director.  She replaces Susan Poole, who left CRS to become the Development Officer at the Community Foundation of Lorain County.  Pam was hired in 2010 as the Bookkeeper and Special Events Coordinator in charge of the annual Charity Ball.  Most recently she has served as the Interim Director.
Pam lives in the community and is well versed in the services provided to residents of Avon and Avon Lake.  The CRS Board of Directors, staff and volunteers are thrilled that Pam will provide trusted leadership and continuity to CRS.
