In December, TAUNY’s Board of Directors welcomed two new members to the board –– Kate Newell of Canton and William Holland of Pierrepont.
Newell, a native of St. Lawrence County, currently makes her home in Canton. She is a former elementary school teacher, has served on numerous North Country community boards, and is a co-founder of the Sweetgrass Foundation. She’s been involved with TAUNY since the beginning and continues to be a strong supporter of the organization.
Holland, of Pierrepont, works as a staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York in Canton. Holland moved to the North Country from New York City with his wife after she accepted a professorship at SLU. He grew up in rural Minnesota, a place similar in many ways to St. Lawrence County. His first time at TAUNY was spent painting a barn quilt in the lower level and he looks forward to becoming more involved.
The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main St., Canton.
