CHERRYFIELD, ME — Maine Seacoast Mission’s Human Resource Generalist Ann Cox Halkett announces the promotion of Scott Shaw to the position of Downeast Campus Facilities and Housing Rehabilitation Manager, effective July 1, 2018.
For the past 15 years, based in Cherryfield, Maine, Mr. Shaw served as Downeast Campus Caretaker and Housing Rehabilitation Program Coordinator.
The Housing Rehabilitation program fixes or rebuilds twenty houses a year. From painting to insulated mobile home skirting to new roofs. The rehabilitation work is made possible by more than 350 volunteers from church and community groups across the U.S. who spend one or two weeks at the Weald Bethel Community Center and make a huge difference in these families’ lives.
“We are in awe of how Scott handles the hundreds of moving parts of the Housing program,” said Ann Cox Halkett.
At the June 1, 2018 Weald Bethel Community Center grand opening, the culmination of a 10 year dream, Mission Director of Service Programs Wendy Harrington said, “This wouldn’t have happened on the ground if it weren’t for Scott Shaw. Scott made this happen and he’s going to keep it happening.”
Shaw will continue overseeing the Housing Program, and he will also take on management of the newly expanded Downeast campus.
