“I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Carpenter will be the new Director of the Montgomery County Senior Center,” says Chairman Leland Adams. “I am thankful when the County has the opportunity to hire someone locally for leadership positions in the County. I am looking forward to Mrs. Carpenter leading this vital service that is provided to the County’s aging population.”
