The Jackson County Community Foundation (JCCF) has hired a new director for the organization.

Misty D. Hamon brings a background of service and experience to the Foundation. From 2016 through 2018, Hamon served as the Program Manager for the organization. In that capacity, she worked directly with the annual Charity Challenge Fun Run/Walk and the benefit dinner that recognized all those who participated in and sponsored the event.

In her tenure at JCCF, Hamon also worked with the scholarship committee and the various fund holders.

A resident of Sandyville, Hamon is a Jackson County native.

“I think JCCF and I are a perfect fit,” Hamon said. “I have some experience and I love working for this organization. My entire goal, my focus will be to help the Foundation flourish. To do that, I’m ready to assist any of our donors in any way possible.”

The non-profit Jackson County Community Foundation, located on the second floor of the City National Bank building on North Church Street in Ripley, manages and invests charitable funds to support the local community. Community grants and scholarships to Jackson County are made possible through the generosity of donations and the establishment of funds with the foundation.
