Step one: Hire a program director. Check.

After the Ray County Coalition was awarded $125,000 in a Drug-Free Communities Grant last month, it needed a director to handle the coalition’s programming. Tri-County Mental Health Services staff members found their new hire: a Liberty mother with years of experience working with youth and a marketing background to boot.
