AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Mary E. Bivins Foundation has selected a new president and CEO.
Katharyn Wiegard, vice president of community investment for the Amarillo Area Foundation, will be joining the Bivins Foundation as the president and CEO effective on June 4.
"Katharyn has an outstanding career with the Amarillo Area Foundation and has a true passion for the core elements of the Bivins mission, including its commitment to quality care for older adults, and we are very pleased to welcome her," said Bivins Board Chair Gary Fletcher. "At the same time, we realize that Jude Day cannot be replaced, and the organization will forever be in her debt for all she has done."
In addition to working with the Amarillo Area Foundation, Wiegand is currently the president of the Canyon ISD school board, a team member of the Texas Education Grantmakers Consortium, a board member of the Non-profit Management Alliance of Texas, and more.
Wiegard will follow Judy Day, who is retiring after 39 years with the foundation.
