The Minnesota Conference Board voted on Sept. 20 to ask Savannah B. Carlson to serve as Human Resources director and Communication director. Carlson graduated from Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, with degrees in business administration and communication. As a student, she was a member of the National Who’s Who Honor Society and editor-in-chief for the Union College newspaper during 2010-11.

Carlson brings valuable experience and a track record of success to the Minnesota Conference. She previously served as office manager and registrar for Atlanta North School in Dunwoody, Georgia, and as a talent consultant in Human Resources at Park Ridge Health in Hendersonville, North Carolina. In December 2012 she received a Service Excellence Award.

“We are confident that Savannah will bring the same energy and devotion to her responsibilities as Human Resources director as she has in her previous administrative assistant role within the conference,” said Justin Lyons, conference president. “Savannah is also an excellent writer, and we are pleased that she has accepted to serve as communication director, relieving Brian Mungandi who remains in his present role as vice president for administration and Sabbath School director.”
