Loss of Kim Sallee as director of GRAS is setback

By Celia Downey
Personel Commentary

This is a note about the resignation of Kim Sallee, the Director for the Animal Shelter located in Adair County.

Who could do what she must have been required to participate in? Most shove those thoughts under the rug. But somebody has to do the job and Kim Sallee took the seat.

Kim has proven that she cares about the Shelter Animals and had the knowledge to access the necessary resources to provide ethical care for those animals who found themselves in her care.

The loss of a knowledgeable and caring Director is a setback, especially for a rural community.

Quality dedicated and knowledgeable leaders are an endangered species. If a person with those attributes is found, it is discernible to retain that person for the good of the community at large, regardless of the population served.

I want to extend a Thank You to Kim Sallee for her Admirable Dedication to the Ethical Treatment of Animals in Adair County during her time as the Director for our Shelter.

We should extend the best of wishes to Kim and to support the person who is chosen to step into her shoes.

Thank you, - Celia
