Our newest member is our Executive Director, Leyla Keinanen, who has returned to Anderson County after many years away (Who knew 2020 was the worst year to make a big homecoming, at least in terms of anyone from childhood being able to see and recognize her face!). She takes over for the legendary Susan Bowling, who was the heart and soul of Anderson County Community Action for 42 years until her retirement (1978-2020!!!) and will remain a VIP around here. Leyla was in marching band with Angie back in the nineties, as the drum major leading the show, and suffers from a bossy streak to this day. She tries really hard to harness her energy and enthusiasm for the forces of good, and these past four months they have all gone towards the mission of Community Action! Hopefully the results will begin to speak for themselves as we add new programs and expand awareness of our mission throughout the county, and gain new partners and collaborators.
