WESTMINSTER, Vt. — Kurn Hattin Homes for Children is planning for its future with leadership restructuring. To begin, Admissions Director Sue Kessler, M.Ed will take on the role of assistant executive director beginning July 1. She will be overseeing direct student services which include the School, Residential Life, Counseling, Nursing, Food Services, Volunteers, and Admissions. Executive Director, Steve Harrison will continue to oversee organizational services–those that operate to support the overall organization, the operations of the campus, and the financial aspects of the Homes.
Executive Director Steve Harrison said, “When we considered creating an assistant executive director position, we sculpted it with Sue Kessler in mind; she was such a natural “fit” for this role. With almost 25 years of admissions experience at Kurn Hattin, Sue knows the staff, students, and programs already, so there will be no lag time to get her acclimated. I am thrilled to have Sue grow in her work here and to work with her side-by-side to advance our mission of transforming children’s lives.” Board President Mark Bodin added, “The new assistant executive director position will allow Kurn Hattin to continue moving forward to provide a great experience for our children and staff. Sue Kessler brings a wealth of experience and is the perfect person to fill this role.”
