Habitat for Humanity of Dalton-Whitfield and Murray selected Donna Lusk new executive director.
Lusk fills the vacancy created by Vivian Chance, who retired earlier in the year.
Lusk will provide strategic direction in the areas of fundraising, marketing and volunteer recruitment. Her diverse experience working with nonprofits and the local community will be a strong asset to her new role.
“I feel very thankful to work with an exceptional group that share the vision of helping provide affordable housing to our community,” Lusk said.
Lusk is a 25-year resident of Dalton where she resides with her husband, Kent. They have two children, Blake and Allie, who attend college. She is active in her church where she serves on various committees and volunteers in the community.
Since 1987, Habitat of Dalton-Whitfield has partnered with local churches, businesses, foundations and the public sector to provide more than 50 Whitfield County families with an opportunity to purchase their own home. The local affiliate recently expanded into Murray County and is now building the first Habitat home in that community.
“Donna’s energy, innovative ideas and can-do attitude will be an invaluable asset as we look forward to carrying out our mission of bringing people together to build homes and hope,” said Pam Stephens, board president. “We are confident this combination of skills and expertise will serve us and the community well.”
