County's superintendents picked as United Way campaign co-chairs

MEADVILLE — United Way of Western Crawford County announced on Thursday that Crawford County school superintendents Charles Heller, Jarrin Sperry and Connie Youngblood are its 2013-14 annual campaign co-chairpersons. This is the 88th year of the campaign in western Crawford County.

Heller is superintendent of Crawford Central School District, Sperry is superintendent at Conneaut School District and Youngblood is superintendent at PENNCREST School District.

“I was honored to be asked to co-chair the United Way annual campaign with my fellow superintendents,” Youngblood said. “In PENNCREST, we emphasize service learning as part of our students’ educational experience. Co-chairing the United Way campaign allows me to give something back to my community and, at the same time, model for my students the importance of service to others.”

“We are so pleased to have all three districts represented by this year’s co-chairs,” said Duane Koller, recently appointed president of the Board of Directors of the UWWCC. “We work extensively with the faculty, students and staff of all of the schools in our region through our work with Make A Difference Day and our general fundraising. This is an excellent opportunity to increase participation on many levels. We look forward to a great campaign and to working with all three Superintendents.”

United Way of Western Crawford County continues to focus on education, income and health and funds programs, which have proven positive outcomes in these areas. United Way continues to invest the resources raised with the intention to make sustained and measurable improvements in our county.

Heller, Sperry and Youngblood will challenge the residents of western Crawford County to be part of the change in the community.
