"The board felt strongly that we maintain representation from our health care and higher education sectors to represent these key partner organizations," CMEDP Board Chair Luke Tucker said. "We welcome Kelsea and Jennifer's distinct perspectives as they join our board in our important programs and projects."

Holloway earned an associate's degree in political science, a bachelor's degree in public management and master's degree in leadership, with a focus on organizational communication. Previously, she was a certified retail store manager and a small business owner.

The CMEDP Board of Directors meets at 4 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month. On the odd-numbered months, it gathers for a boardroom-style meeting at CNCC Room 175. In even-numbered months, it visits a business in the community to tour and understand from its owners and managers its successes and challenges. Board meetings are open to the community.
