United Way of Front Royal-Warren County welcomes new president
The United Way of Front Royal-Warren County announced Shane Goodwin has been elected to serve as president of the organization for fiscal year 2021.
Goodwin, who is the principal at E. Wilson Morrison Elementary School, joined the United Way Board in August 2019.
Since joining the board, Goodwin has taken on many community projects, including serving on the Community Impact Grant Interview Committee, which leads the way for local United Ways to provide grant funding for community agencies. The committee recently approved $35,000 in funding for eight community agencies over the next year, including Blue Ridge Legal Services, House of Hope, The Laurel Center, Phoenix Project, St. Luke Community Clinic, Habitat for Humanity, Cars Changing Lives, and Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry.
Goodwin’s goals for the year include increasing corporate funding and partnerships; increasing board member involvement on committees; setting in motion a process to increase credit scores and net worth among community members; and working toward establishing a facility to provide children with quality exercise and mentoring.
