Two join board of Life Center

The Life Center of Hernando announced recently the addition of two new board members — Kit Raymond and Pam Pollock.

Raymond joined the center in September and serves as the off-site house mom for the Little House, the center's first transitional housing shelter. She has a bachelor's degree in English education from the University of Michigan, and is certified in math and English for middle schools. Raymond raised seven children in Michigan, where she also ran a day care. A resident of Brooksville, she is the director/housemother of Starfish House, a discipleship home for women of faith. She is also a substitute teacher and tutors in math and prepares adults for the GED and college placement exams.

Pollock joined the center's board in November as treasurer. She is originally from Long Island, N.Y. She received her bachelor's degree from Talladega College and a master's degree in business administration from Clark-Atlanta University. She is in the process of earning a master's degree in health care administration from the University of Phoenix. She not only volunteers for the Life Center, but also assists and trains developmentally disabled individuals to help them live independently.
