During its board meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2016, the Board of Commissioners for the Verdant Health Commission formally appointed Robin Fenn, Ph.D., LICSW, as superintendent of the Verdant Health Commission, effective at the first of the year. To learn more about Fenn, view the news posted in November. Welcome, Robin!
Fenn is taking over for Carl Zapora, who has served as superintendent since the launch of Verdant in 2011 and is retiring at the end of this month. Zapora led the development of Verdant, taking it from the concept created by the commissioners into the organization it is today. During his tenure, Verdant has invested more than $20.9 million in community-based health and wellness programming and opened the Verdant Community Wellness Center in Lynnwood, where Verdant offers free and low-cost health and wellness programs and classes. Our sincerest thanks to Carl for his work and dedication to the organization, and we wish him well in retirement!
