United Way leader resigns

Bogle accepts post at SCC foundation

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 — Christy Bogle, executive director of United Way of Stanly County, will soon be leaving her position at the nonprofit.

On March 31 she will take up a new mantle as foundation director at Stanly Community College.

Bogle has worked with United Way for about four years, Executive Board President Steve Cumming said.

He and other United Way board members received notification that Bogle would be leaving Monday morning.

“It’s bittersweet,” Cumming said.

He was on the United Way board when Bogle was brought on.

“She’s done a great job,” he said.

“She’s grown the annual campaign for four consecutive years. She’s been a positive force for our member agencies. Overall, she’s represented Stanly County well.”

Cumming, who actually works for SCC, said the college is gaining a valuable asset.

“You can never be sad for someone who rises to a new job, especially when they’ve done so well with the old one,” Cummings said.

“But it’s still bittersweet.”

At the United Way’s regularly scheduled board meeting Tuesday, members will begin the process of seeking and hiring a new executive director.

In the meantime, SCC is preparing to welcome its newest member.

“Christy brings to the position a wealth of experience through her tenure at the United Way, a sterling reputation in the community and she is highly recognized for her ability to build friendships and foster partnerships,” SCC President Brenda Kays said in an email to the staff released to The SNAP.

“I look forward to working closely with her in order to move our foundation and our college to the ‘next level.’ ”

Tom George, dean of marketing and outreach at SCC, said the college began advertising the position after the former foundation director moved into another position at SCC.

At that point all applications went through a committee, but George said Bogle’s background stood out.

“Running a nonprofit is a leg up on a lot of folks,” George said.

Bogle has also played a key role in developing nonprofit courses at the college, he said.

“Plus she’s so involved in the community already,” he said.

“I’m personally very excited to have somebody with her skill set and knowledge of folks on board.”

Bogle declined to make a comment out of respect for the United Way members and SCC staff involved in the transition process.
