The DeWitt County Friendship Center will officially have a new leader at the start of February and she hopes to increase community involvement at the DeWitt County senior gather spot.
Paula Jiles is taking over for the retiring Sissy Leggett, and Leggett is confident Jiles will come in and make some headway and take the Friendship Center to new heights.
Jiles knows she has big shoes to fill but has some ideas she's ready to run with when the reigns are officially turned over to her.
One of Jiles' biggest goals is to increase participation from seniors of the center, seniors of the community and from the community as a whole.
Jiles has been working with Leggett to learn the ins-and-outs of the Friendship Center and she'll officially take over February 1 and looks forward to continue on with the relationships in place and forge new ones.
