The Beacon Seeks New Director

The Beacon, a local helping agency, is seeking a new director.

Sue Emmons, who has been the director for approximately 18 months resigned a few weeks ago, for personal reasons, Carol MacArthur, Beacon Board member said.

The resignation is effective July 31.

The board is currently searching for a new director with a deadline for applications set for July 23.

“We are looking for someone who cares and who wants to work with people who are struggling,” MacArthur said.

For more information, or to apply contact MacArthur at [email protected] or 620-215-1505.

The position is for 20 hours per week, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and pays approximately $11.50 per hour.

The Beacon ministry provides food and clothing to those struggling and in need, as well as occasional assistance with other basic needs; i.e., rent, utilities, and prescriptions, MacArthur said. It also refers individuals to other agencies who may help them with specific needs.

The job is perfect for a retiree, MacArthur said.

“A teacher would be a good fit,” she said. “We need someone who is organized, a good listener and a communicator. It’s managing the building and two other people who are paid, and representing The Beacon.”
