The United Way of the Flint Hills has named an interim director.

Hannah Crowl, the United Way's community impact manager, is now leading the organization as the United Way Board of Directors continues the search for a permanent director after the resignation of Jami Reever late last month. She thanked the board for its decision and she says she's working to make the transition smooth for the new director once that person comes on board. She also says she's glad to be part of the United Way's mission.

Crowl joined the United Way seven years ago after graduating from the University of Kansas in 2011. As community impact manager, she has managed several United Way programs and initiatives, including Read Across America Day, Summer Climbin' and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. She is also active in several committees, including Flint Hills tiny-k, Lyon County Organizations Activated in Disasters, Healthier Lyon County and Family Resource Council. A graduate of Leadership Emporia, Crowl has also been active with the United Ways of Kansas and United Way Worldwide.

Board President Kim Parks says Crowl will do well in her new role.

Crowl assumes her new role with the United Way's annual fundraising campaign underway. Goal is $560,000. Both Crowl and Parks say the drive is going well.

Crowl is not a candidate for the permanent position. Parks says applications have come in for the director post and there is a deadline of Sept. 18 for submissions. There is no word yet on when the United Way plans to announce a new director.

Longtime director Jami Reever is taking the executive director position with Kansas Appleseed on Sept. 30.
