A Galt woman, Loren Fox was elected to a two-year term on the Foundation Board of Directors. A graduate of Trenton High School and North Central Missouri College, Miss Fox is now seeking a secondary degree in Agriculture Education from NCMC with plans to transfer to Northwest Missouri State University. Recognizing the need for young people to be represented on the foundation board, Miss Fox was chosen as a role model among her peers, excelling in both marketing and community involvement and the fact that Miss Fox hopes to remain in the immediate area for years to come and contribute to the betterment of the area. She has served as a NCMC ambassador.

“Loren brings a strong agriculture background to the board and can be a spokesperson for the young person’s today and the leaders of tomorrow,” says Foundation Development Officer Matt Osterthun. “Our young generations represent the future of Wright Memorial, the Trenton community and this entire region, so it’s important to get them highly involved in organizations that strive to make a difference for others.”

Board members Cathy McKay, Dr. Kevin Harris and Linda Kennebeck, all of Trenton were all re-elected to serve two-year terms. Steve Maxey and Robert Gallup, both of Trenton were re-elected to serve a one-year term on the Foundation Board. The addition of Miss Fox brings the total number of board of directors to fourteen for the Foundation.

Foundation Board Vice-President Chad Boyd announced that the 10th Annual Foundation Charity Golf Tournament raised over $18,000 for the “Equipped for the Future” Campaign. 26 teams from across the region participated in the three-person scramble event held on June 13th at Riverside Country Club. He thanked the sponsors, players and volunteers in making the tournament a success.

Foundation Board Member Cara McClellan reported that plans continue to develop for the third annual Wright Run 5k/10k on Saturday, October 4th. She informed the board that a $25 donation is required per participant, with an extra $10 charge if persons want a long-sleeved event shirt. Mrs. McClellan also shared the race and its activities have been moved to the new facility on Iowa Boulevard, with the route utilizing the lake neighborhood and finishing with participants running or walking the last half-mile of the race on the walking trail when complete. All proceeds from the walk/run will support the “Equipped for the Future” campaign.

WMH Foundation Development Officer Matt Osterthun reported the walking trail construction is going well thanks to favorable weather conditions. He informed the board that once the trail is complete, lighting will be installed, landscaping will be implemented and the three sitting areas will be constructed to complete phase two of the project.

Osterthun also reported on the “Equipped for the Future” Campaign, stating over $92,000 has been committed to the $300,000 project. The campaign is to raise funds for a new OB Centralized Monitoring System and 3D Ultrasound Machine for Wright Memorial Hospital.

Hospital CEO Gary Jordan reported on hospital financials, physician recruitment, regional developments and OB growth.

The Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation Board will meet again on September 2, 2014.
