Vote scheduled this week

The search committee's choice of Lesley Scearce is a recommendation to United Way's board, which will vote on it Wednesday.

The president and CEO of the local nonprofit youth development organization On Point is a search committee's unanimous choice to lead the United Way of Greater Chattanooga.

Lesley Scearce will join the United Way as president and CEO this summer before current President Eva Dillard retires in August, according to an email sent today to agency executives and board leaders on behalf of Tom Glenn with the search committee.

"We believe Lesley has the experience and skills necessary to lead United Way into the next decade as the greater Chattanooga area continues to undergo significant change and growth," Glenn said in the email.
