Red Cross Deploys Lebanon Volunteer to Nashville

Springfield, MO — The Greater Ozarks Chapter of the American Red Cross will send Beverly Miller, Executive Director of the Lebanon chapter office and volunteer, to Nashville to help the office transition with leadership roles after the recent flooding. 

            Mrs. Miller was requested by National Headquarters in Washington D.C. because of her knowledge of chapter and disaster relief operations.  She has been a volunteer for the Red Cross since 2001 and has been deployed many times to help with sheltering and case management.  Her knowledge of managing the office in Lebanon, as well as being a compassionate individual, is critical to a smooth transition with leadership roles.  She is also well respected by staff and volunteers throughout the Greater Ozarks region.
