Fond farewell

Fond farewell

January 9, 2018


The Richland County Board of Developmental Disabilities said goodbye in December to two long-time members.

Margaret Davis and Virginia Harmon finished their third consecutive four-year term – the maximum allowed for board members.  The Mansfield residents both have children who receive supports from Richland Newhope.

“It’s been amazing,” said Davis.  “I’ve learned a lot.  I couldn’t ask to have been on a better board.  It was more than a board; it was a family.  I’m going to miss it.”

“It has been a nice experience,” said Harmon.  “Having a child, an adult with developmental disabilities, it has kept me informed on all of the policies and things that are changing in the DD world.  It was a pleasure to serve on the board, and I look forward to working with it in other capacities in the future.”

During her tenure, Harmon served as board president, vice-president, and secretary.  She also was a member of the board of trustees of the Ohio Association of County Boards of DD.
