Congrats and good luck to new JEA director

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

If you took note of this week’s article over in the News & Notes area, or you caught wind of it over at the JEA website, then you know by now that Virginia Tech University adviser Kelly Furnas was named the new executive director of JEA this week.

Here in the Yearbooks Blog, we wanted to take a moment to say a quick congratulations and good luck to Furnas as he embarks on his new job with the JEA.

We would also be remiss if we didn’t also pass along congratulations to outgoing executive director Linda Puntney, who is retiring from the JEA this summer.
