Thursday, May 4, was Sharlene Weed’s last day as staff leader for Sisters Habitat for Humanity.
Weed has been with the organization for 27 years and will be honored for her long service “not only to Habitat but for her time on City Council and her prominent role in Sisters Cold Weather Shelter,” said Joe Rambo, board president of the local affiliate of the nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home.
Rambo informed the staff of Weed’s separation from Habitat at a 9 a.m. May 8 meeting. Peter Hoover, operations manager, will serve as acting executive director while a search committee is formed and a new leader chosen.
Volunteers were notified the following day of the announcement to the staff.
“The Board and Sharlene were unable to agree on a path for the future direction of the organization, and decided that it would be best for [there to be] new leadership,” Rambo told The Nugget.
Rambo said that Weed will take some much-deserved time away from work, and have more time for family and to do some travel.
