Battles named new director of Harrison United Way

by Tina Canon

STAFF WRITER

The search for a new executive director for the United Way of Harrison County is over. The board's search committee has selected Marie Battles, director of CRISS-CROSS, Inc., for the post.

Battles replaces Ken Moslander, who resigned from the United Way in January. Battles will begin May 1.

She is "experienced with non-profit groups and knows the community," said Julie Perine, United Way marketing associate.

Battles has been with CRISS-CROSS for 17 years and has been director since 1990. Battles was the manager of the agency's consumer credit counseling program before that. She also was outreach coordinator for the Region 7 Senior Companion Program in Buckhannon.

Battles is currently a community representative for the Harrison County Family Resource Network, a member of the board of directors of the Clarksburg Mission and is on the board of the North Central West Virginia Coalition for the Homeless.

Battles' United Way duties will include fund-raising and educating the community about the agency. She wants to inform the public on what is being funded and what agencies have to offer.

"I'm looking forward to working with the volunteers," she said Tuesday. "This community always pitches in for us to reach our goal. ... This is a great way to work with the families in the area."

While she will miss CRISS-CROSS, Inc., "I feel like I am leaving the agency in good shape," Battles said. "I'll be right around the corner, so I'm not going far." Battles also will help with the search for a new CRISS-CROSS director.

Battles lives in the Bridgeport area with her husband, Peter, and children John and Emily.
