Whitehead assumes Audubon Center directorship klandwer
Updated: 2013-12-05 18:56:20
Donna Whitehead has been named the executive director of the Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center by the center's board of directors. Whitehead, the center's former business manager, served as interim director since April 2013, when Robin McAlester left to accept a position in corporate communications at Empire District Electric Company.

“I am delighted that Donna was willing to take the Directorship of the Center,” said Patricia Hagen, executive director of Audubon Missouri. “She has been a great partner in setting the Center’s future vision, and is clearly passionate about the Center’s success, and its service to the entire Joplin community and throughout the region. Her knowledge, warmth and humor have been and will continue to be instrumental in the continued success of the center and its outreach goals.”

Whitehead attended Crowder College. She owned and operated Seneca Lumber Company and served as coordinator of the Title VII Native American Grant for the Seneca School District. She is a member of the Joplin Kiwanis and Racine Christian Church and has an extensive history working with the Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists programs.

After a lengthy and comprehensive national search for a center director, it became obvious to the search committee that the best person for this vital leadership position was already on our team,” said Mike Pence, president of the center's board. “Clearly, Donna Whitehead stands tall as the leader who will take us to the next level of our evolution and integration into the fabric of our community.”
