The Ohio Assoc. of County Boards of Developmental Disabilities
The Highland County Board of DD is proud to announce the appointment of Karen Adams to the Ohio Association of County Boards of DD, joining their Board of Trustees beginning in 2018. The appointment to the statewide association is the first time the Highland County Board of DD has had a Board member serving in this capacity.
Ms. Adams has served on the Highland County DD Board since 2011. She began serving as the President of the Board in 2017. Ms. Adams has a background in health care as a Respiratory Therapist and currently works as an administrator providing oversight in the medical field.
Ms. Adams interest in the field of developmental disabilities has been life-long, growing up with a family member who is a current service recipient of the HCBDD.
When asked about Ms. Adams appointment to the OACB as a
Trustee, the HCBDD Superintendent, Deb Buccilla said, “I am excited that Karen
will now have the ability to represent the small counties in the state. A
smaller county’s perspective is unique, and the issues are not the same as in a
larger urban county. Karen’s representation will not only help Highland County but
also other counties similarly situated.”
