A longtime Tri-City area nonprofit official has been picked as the next executive director of the Benton-Franklin chapter of the American Red Cross.
Peggy Hoggarth starts Aug. 26.
She replaces Jeanne Jelke, who retired this year after more than a decade in the post.
Hoggarth most recently worked as chief development officer of the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation, and before that spent 10 years as the division director for the local March of Dimes Foundation, a Red Cross news release said.
We are extremely excited to have Peggy join our team, said Terry Pollard, regional Red Cross chief executive officer, in the news release. I am confident that her experience, commitment to the community, and passion for our mission will position her for great success as the leader of the Red Cross in the Benton-Franklin area.
