Wanda Russell Retires

We would like to announce the retirement of our Human Resources Director, Wanda Russell. Wanda gave Community Connections over 17 years of service. She started as the Human Resources Coordinator and was a department of 1 but collaborated with other members of Community Connections and assisted in the growing of her department. Wanda started out as a team of one and ended with a team of four. When asked about her favorite part of working for Community Connections she stated that there were several reasons why she loved this job. What was she said was the most memorable was that she could use her talents in many ways and could be involved in more than just human resources. She said she felt appreciated that her talents and skills were recognized to be used for different projects throughout the agency. Wanda was a part of the Leadership Committee, Social Media Team and the Administrative All Minds Matter Committee. She says what she will miss the most are the people who she built relationships with and serving our consumers. Wanda stated that the skills she learned at Community Connections will help her on her next journey. As we have seen, Wanda has a passion for giving back and she wants to take that passion global. Wanda is embarking on a mission trip to Puerto Rico to bring supplies to families that are still struggling after the hurricane and to the population that lives in a more mountainous region that has limited access to supplies. Her primary goal is to continue doing mission work and continually improve her skills to effectively serve many more nations in need. Wanda will be missed at the agency but we encourage her as she continues to give back.
