Dana Chapman is leaving her post as executive director of The Guest House to take the same position at ITNLanier.
Chapman has worked for the past six years in the director role of the daytime care facility for seniors. Her new job takes her to the nonprofit that provides transportation services for Hall County seniors and the visually impaired.
Jerry Butler, chairman of ITNLanier’s board of directors, said the program’s growth brought the need for a full-time executive director. The service has given 3,500 rides, including 2,200 in its second year.
“We are pleased to have someone with Dana’s passion for serving the needs of seniors leading the continued growth of ITNLanier,” Butler said in a press release announcing the hiring of Chapman.
Under Chapman’s leadership, The Guest House expanded and upgraded facilities and services.
“The scope of activities offered to our guests and the financial stability of the organization is in large part due to Dana’s efforts. We are going to miss her,” said MJ Locklear, chairman of The Guest House board of directors, in the release. “We have a search under way to replace Dana and continue to maintain our service to the Hall County senior community.”
