Higdon Selected as New Executive Director

Second Harvest Community Food Bank is proud to announce Chad Higdon as the organization’s new Executive Director.  The board of directors selected Higdon after an in-depth, five month search.  Over 100 resumes from across the country were submitted for the position. 

“Chad brings a variety of skills and resources to the organization and has a strong work ethic,” said Brett Carolus, board chair of Second Harvest.  “He is extremely respected throughout our service territory and understands the needs of our region.  He has tremendous compassion for those who are food insecure and is dedicated to the mission of the organization.  We are excited about the future with Higdon and know he will provide stability and leadership for many years.” 

Higdon may look familiar to many in the region.  He is a lifelong resident of St. Joseph where he graduated from Benton High School and Missouri Western State University.  For the past seven months, Higdon has served as the interim executive director for Second Harvest.  He also served on Second Harvest’s board of directors from December 2009 to December 2012, acting as the board chair for a little over a year. 

“I look forward to continuing my work with Second Harvest’s very talented and dedicated staff as I move into this new role, knowing the work being done is benefitting many individuals who truly need our support,” said Higdon. 

Higdon is probably most recognizable for his work for Congressman Sam Graves where he worked as a field representative for 10 years.  During that time, he managed the successful Graves for Congress campaign in 2010. 

An active member of the community, Higdon serves as the president of the St. Joseph Southside Rotary club.  Higdon also helps coordinate Bluegrass Battles Hunger, a bluegrass festival that raises food and funds for Second Harvest. 

Higdon and his wife Christina (Chris) have three children: Kiersten, Michael and Addie. Chris teaches 5th grade at Humboldt Elementary in St. Joseph.

http://muratmonus.com/node/33195#comment-77631 この過程で従来は「唐人」「朝鮮」「琉球」など国名で区分されていたものが、十八世紀にはおおよそ外国人を指して「唐人」と総称する傾向が生まれ、国外の文物・事象が極端に単純化され、また自国の文化的成熟とともに蔑視する風潮が生じてくることになる一方の朝鮮においては明滅亡、清誕生に伴う「大中華」の喪失と、朝鮮出兵(壬申倭乱)後のナショナルアイデンティティの勃興、そしてその後の朝鮮通信使の衰退による実質的鎖国化(これは日朝両国ともに当てはまる)により、日本では国学に座を譲り衰退する朱子学的概念に対して、朝鮮では「華」を継承する唯一の国「小中華」として強烈に意識されるようになる日本が朝鮮を「その他の国」と同様に「唐人」として蔑視し始めることと平行して、朝鮮でもまた日本を「倭奴」として蔑視することが当然のように進行することとなった(もっとも両国において主流ではなくともお互いを研究する者がいたことは忘れてはならない)その後、同じような「閉鎖的社会」を抱えながら、日朝両国は帝国主義の荒波の中で、それぞれ「内政改革」「人材登用」などが唱えられ、また啓蒙・開化思想においては「天賦人権」「国権平等」「民族自立」などがスローガンとなる同じような過程を経ていながら、一体日朝両国の間でどのような差異があったのであろうか日本では「幕藩体制」という体制を「打倒」することで「復古的」とはいえ劇的な体制転換を遂げることになる。自民組織と企業ぐるみ全開 松浦陣営が追い上げムード 松浦陣営は、16年前に地べたをはうような県議選を故柏原敏喜と争って以来の選挙戦で組織づくりに手間どった。大正時代から昭和円本時代にかけては、『資本論』の翻訳のディケードでもあったのだ。メセニー様のギターシンセ音色をこのJD 990で作ってみたところ、見事に「クリソツ」になりました。 http://balirenyulecheng9237.com/?post=82#1465 目玉は、「人間関係が希薄になり不景気が続く今日、家族だけでなく多くの人と『福を共有し、きずなを深めてほしい』と思い企画した」(同店)という、「メガ盛り」をキーワードにした3種類の福袋。同大学院修了後、民社党政策審議会勤務。最後はいつもの場所でお眠り中のビーグル君です。 http://katella-68-69.classyshots.com/forums/topic/5-drogi-to-bedzie-planowanie-dla-triumfalny-online-biznes-wycofac-viagra-jak-dziala/page/20/#post-2353 http://blog4.manuelmartin.com/index.php?2009/01/24/958-samedi-24-janvier-2009&mod=1 http://g32.pl/#comment-7199 http://www.robisrob.com/?p=32#comment-61074 http://www.theyun.co.kr/front/php/product.php?product_no=264&main_cate_no=1&display_group=2

I'm sure the six employees that were eliminated and the remaining employees that received pay reductions are teeming with congratulatory thoughts for Chad Hidgon and his austerity programs.
