The PRT is pleased to announce that Kay Pitt and Sue Archibald have joined the PRT Board of Directors. Both women bring a wealth of experience to the board.

Kay, who lives in Elgin with her husband Ron, taught accounting at Northern Arizona University for 30 years. She is active in the Crossroads Quilters, the Elgin Club, and the Patagonia Methodist Church, where she volunteers in the thrift shop. She joined the Board after being approached by her friend, board treasurer Jamie Smith. “I really like the paper,” Kay said. “The articles are good, and I just like being involved in the community.”

Sue, who lives in Whetstone with her husband Steve, was CEO of “Our Family Services,” a nonprofit, for 20 years. She has served on numerous community, city, state and national boards, and has testified before the U.S. House of representatives about homeless youth, her area of expertise. She has also been a federal contractor, reviewing nonprofit programs that receive federal grants. She has been a Rotarian for 20 years, and has been on the board of Friends of the Patagonia Library and the Sonoita Elgin Fire District, volunteers at the Sonoita fairgrounds, Our Lady of the Angels Church, Angel Wings Thrift Shop and the Elgin Club.

Kay and Sue will fill seats vacated by Donna Lee and Bob Brandt. Donna has returned to her Alaska home to be closer to family. Her efforts on the fundraising committee, organizing, strategizing, writing handwritten letters to donors, and her unfailing good spirits all made her invaluable and a large part of the success the PRT has experienced. Bob has retired from the Board after five years of service to concentrate on other interests, including establishing viable recycling options in Eastern Santa Cruz County, management consulting for Wildlife Corridors, and trail maintenance. Bob served as President of the Board, overseeing the evolution of the PRT into the community resource it has become. We thank them both for all they have done to help the PRT grow and thrive, and we will miss them
