We would like to take this time to give you all an update on recent changes to our board of directors. Each July, we thank our outgoing board members and welcome our new additions. We would first like to thank Yvette Herrera for all the work she has done in supporting our organization. Yvette joined the board in 2014 and has completed her board term. Her contributions have helped excel the organization and, because of her hard work, we are all better. Yvette is a member of South Hills Church and longtime resident of Burbank.
We would also like to extend a special thanks to Kenny Pawlek, who is completing his term as Board President. Kenny is a member of Burbank First United Methodist Church and the COO at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. His contributions have helped provide a new vision for the organization as we enter a new decade. Thank you, Kenny.
Lastly, we have approved two new members to join our board: Carol Nunez from the Burbank Hilton Garden Inn and Romik Yaghoobimasihi from TPX Communications. Both Carol and Romik bring great enthusiasm and innovative ideas to Family Promise of the Verdugos, and we are excited to continue our work with them!
