United Way of Laurens County Welcomes Two New Staff Members
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new staff members! Ramsie Day joined UWLC in June as the Community Impact Coordinator, a brand-new, part-time position, and Allison Seibert will begin Monday, July 31 as the Resource Development Manager.
Formerly staffed by an office of just two, the UWLC Board of Directors recently approved the addition of an all new, part-time position to the organization, to help grow and advance the mission and work of UWLC.
Almost two full months into her new position, Ramsie Day brings marketing, customer service, event planning, and a love for helping people to her role as Community Impact Coordinator. Ramsie will graduate from Savannah College of Art & Design this December with a degree in Visual Communications with a concentration in Advertising. Her hands-on event planning and design background through internships with Greenbrier Farms and RedHype have provided her with the experience needed to even further help the community.
A life-long resident of Laurens County, Allison Seibert is the former Development Specialist with March of Dimes for Laurens, Greenwood and Union Counties. During her time with March of Dimes, she has worked closely with many businesses and community leaders, and brings valuable non-profit, marketing, fundraising, and event planning experience to her new role as Resource Development Manager.
Whitney Robertson, Executive Director, says, "It has certainly been a time of transition but, thanks to Ramsie and her ability to hit the ground running, as well as my history with United Way, it’s been a rather smooth one. We look forward to having Allison on-board and, for the first time in many years, having a staff of more than two. This will truly help us do more in the community, especially where campaign is concerned. When we have the staff available to build on and increase campaign, we can help even more people through the vital programs that depend on funding from United Way."
Whitney and the Board of Directors are excited to have Ramsie and Allison join UWLC, to help further strengthen the organization and serve our great community.
