FCSS names Rhyason as its executive-director

After several months of searching, Stettler and District Family and Community Support Services now has a new executive-director.

After several months of searching, Stettler and District Family and Community Support Services now has a new executive-director.

Wendy Rhyason of Donalda was appointed to the post last week.

“She has a wealth of experience in several public service positions,” said Town of Stettler Coun. Malcolm Fischer, who chairs the board of directors.

“We think she is a perfect fit for FCSS and the Stettler region.”

Rhyason was among 14 applicants, said Fischer, who led the search for a team-oriented leader with strength in public relations and community networking.

“Her references are very strong and they talked about her collaboration and cooperation and that this kind of person is what we want for FCSS and our community.”

“She brings a wealth of experience and understanding how these organizations need to work,” he said.

While counselling is her strength, Fischer said, Rhyason also has experience as a director of family services and in financial administration.

“Her knowledge is extensive,” said Fischer, who noted that the new director is expected to start her new job in the next two weeks.

As director of FCSS, Rhyason will be responsible for day-to-day operations, and to assist individuals, families and communities to gain access to support services.

She would do so “by identifying community and regional needs and (delivering) programs to meet locally-driven preventative social initiatives,” Fischer said in outlining the mandate of the director.
