Hazard Community and Technical College President Dr. Jennifer Lindon is one of three new members named to Goodwill Industries Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is the governing body for Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and has oversight responsibility for all corporate activity. The community trusts the board to ensure that Goodwill is an effective steward of resources and uses those resources to meet community needs.
Dr. Lindon became the first woman president and CEO of Hazard Community and Technical College in 2016. She is a member of the Hazard Perry County Economic Development Board, Hazard Perry County Chamber of Commerce Board and Hazard Rotary Club. She has overseen the college through tremendous change, working to keep HCTC heavily involved in the community and making HCTC’s pandemic response remarkable by reallocating resources for students and employees in a way that best supports student learning and instructors’ abilities to be effective in their jobs.
The other two board members are Beth Davisson and Cherie Flueck. Davisson is the founding executive director of the Kentucky Chamber Foundation’s Workforce Center based in Frankfort. Additionally, she chairs KYSHRM Workforce Readiness, is vice chair of Recovery Consortium of Kentucky, and is involved with the U.S. Chamber. Flueck is vice president, corporate controller and treasury for Lexmark International. She also serves as a board member for Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra and was recognized in 2017 as “Working Mother of the Year” in Working Mother magazine.
“We are pleased to welcome Beth, Cherie and Jennifer as members to Goodwill’s Board of Directors. Each of them brings a wealth of strategic experience, leadership capabilities and diverse knowledge that will complement the skills and experiences of our current members,” said Goodwill Industries of Kentucky President and CEO Amy Luttrell. “They join Goodwill at an exciting time as we continue to execute our strategic mission to reduce Kentucky poverty through the power of work. Employment is the cornerstone of our mission, and I am confident that the new members bring valuable perspectives that will help us serve even more Kentucky job seekers.”
Existing board members for Goodwill Industries of Kentucky include Daniel Hall, Charles Kane, Jason Groneck, William Stout, Douglas Edwards, Greg Gerard, Ajay Gupta, Connie Harvey, Hugh Haydon, Dwight Johnson, Charles Lambert III, Emily Lawrence and Debra Murphy.
