New United Way of the Flint Hills Director Mickey Edwards is enjoying her first few weeks on the job.


Edwards has been on board now for about two weeks after a 23-year career with Court Appointed Special Advocates, including the last four as director of Kansas CASA -- and she talked about her prior experiences, transition period and her future goals on KVOE's Morning Show this week. Edwards says her new role has her excited to serve area residents in a wider capacity than she did while at CASA.

Edwards says her time with CASA prepared her well for her new work with the United Way.

Edwards thanked prior United Way director Jami Reever and Community Impact Manager Hannah Crowl for their help in her transition period.

The United Way is in the thick of its annual fundraising campaign, which will let 24 community partners directly impact over 13,000 people in an eight-county coverage area, including Lyon County. Edwards says one of her focal points as director will be to make sure people in nearby counties understand the impact those community partners have and the work they do.
