United Way announces new board members

GREENVILLE — The Darke County United Way has announced the addition of Kristian Garwood and Gail Overholser to its Board of Directors.

Kristian Garwood is the Administrative Coordinator at Whirlpool Corporation in Greenville. When asked why she joined the board, Garwood said, “I have worked with United Way in other capacities in the past and have enjoyed seeing the benefit of all the good things United Way does.”

She added, “I believe we should all do our part to help those in need. Everyone should have access and opportunity to better themselves and their family for the future.”

Garwood resides in Union City with her fiancé Greg Leonard.

Gail Overholser is Co-Owner and CFO of Superior Implement & Supply Co. (SISCO) in Greenville.

“My husband and I are both lifelong residents of Darke County and are very proud of the community we live in,” stated Overholser. “It has always been my passion to do what I can to give back locally. Being a part of the allocation committee for the United Way in the past gave me a better perspective of all the great things this organization does for the Darke County Community.”

Overholser lives in Greenville with her husband, Ben. They have a grown son and daughter-in-law, Josh and Jennifer Overholser.

“I am looking forward to working with Kristian and Gail through the United Way Board of Directors,” stated Christy Bugher, executive director for the Darke County United Way. “Both have been involved in a variety of ways with the United Way. Kristian has conducted workplace campaigns for two different businesses, and Gail has served on the allocation grant committee as a community participant. Each one brings valuable skills and talents to the table as well as a passion to make Darke County a great place to live and work for EVERY resident.”
