Mayflower Boards Elect New Directors

 The boards of The Mayflower Community–Mayflower Homes, Inc. and Mayflower Homes Foundation–have elected new directors who began service at the boards’ annual meetings on October 18.  Each will serve a three-year term, which may be renewed for another three years.

Jodie Ryan, Grinnell branch manager for Great Western Bank, will be moving from the presidency of the Mayflower Foundation Board of Directors to the Mayflower Homes, Inc. Board of Trustees.

Mark Hudson, regional operation director, Presbyterian Homes and Services, will be joining the Board of Trustees.  Hudson lives in rural Collins, Ia.

Ryan and Hudson fill a board vacancy and replace Bill Hedlund, Des Moines, whose term on the Trustees has expired.

The Mayflower Homes Foundation board welcomed three new directors:  Nicole Brua-Behrens, Bill Ferguson and Bill Yungclas.  They replace Ryan and Jack Mutti, whose six-year terms have expired and fill a vacant Foundation board seat.

Brua-Behrens is the executive director of the Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation.  Ferguson is the Gertrude B. Austin Professor of Economics at Grinnell College.  Yungclas, of Ames, retired as an admissions counselor at Iowa State University.
