Re: Announcing the Superintendent – Sunland
I am pleased to announce that Mr. Jeff Egelston has been selected to fill the position of Superintendent of Sunland. He will assume this role Monday, May 3, 2010.
Mr. Egelston comes to the Agency with more than 22 years of experience in the administration of services for persons with developmental disabilities.
During his career, Mr. Egelston served as Superintendent of a state-operated ICF/DD facility in the state of Ohio, as Regional Director of Florida Res-Care, and as Executive Director of three non-profit agencies serving persons with developmental disabilities in Tennessee and Texas.
Mr. Egelston was selected due to his experience, his commitment to the mission of our Agency, and dedication to serving persons with developmental disabilities. He shares my belief that the true calling of leadership is service to others.
Please join me in welcoming Mr. Egelston to the Agency, and extending best wishes to him in his new role.
