Deborah Cotney, President of Meritan (part of United Way of the Mid-South’s network helping senior citizens maximize their individual potential throughout life’s stages) is retiring this year.
Cotney has been an important member of United Way’s network – serving with our Board of Directors as the U.W. Agency Executive liaison in the past, and supporting agency campaigns in United Way’s fundraising drive. She has also served on numerous committees and groups involved with United Way’s work through the years.
To celebrate her years of success, members of our United Way staff and leaders from organizations and nonprofits came together to wish her well and thank her for her service to the Mid-South. Cotney attended the event dressed in a robe and pajamas – already at work in her new role, breaking in a life of comparative “leisure.” (Photos – Regina Walker)
