On behalf of the CRMC Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, I am very pleased to announce that Ms. Cari Redden has accepted the position of Foundation Director & Volunteer Coordinator. We are incredibly excited for Cari to join our CRMC family! A native of Coffeyville, Ms. Redden has extensive experience in obtaining grants, working collaboratively with community-based organizations, and serving in volunteer leadership roles to raise funds for Community Elementary School and other great causes.
As an adjunct instructor at Coffeyville Community College for Child Development, Marriage and the Family, and Nutrition, Cari’s experience working with diverse groups of students and families in our community will be incredibly helpful for our foundation, hospital, and clinics as we continue to explore new ways in which we can financially support the healthcare needs of our community both on campus and “outside of the walls” of the hospital into our schools, churches, neighborhoods, and other organizations throughout our region. Our CRMC Foundation remains a very key part of our organizational success, and it is a very exciting time for our Foundation team as we begin a new chapter of growth and partnership with our donors, medical staff, employers and communities.
Ms. Redden is the former Director of Academic Advisement of Coffeyville Community College, and received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Family Studies and Human Services from Kansas State University. Over the next few weeks Cari will be helping support the Foundation Board, volunteers, and hospital team in a part-time capacity on the Bill Read Golf Classic slated for August 20th, and she will begin her full-time duties later this summer. Please join me in welcoming Cari to the CRMC family, and be watching for more news from our foundation to come on social media and local news releases.
