The Iron County Care and Share has announced the hiring of Peggy Green as its new executive director. Green joins the Care and Share after working for the past nine years at the Southwest Applied Technology College, where she was Marketing and Recruiting Director.

She has worked for 30 years in human resources, marketing, advertising, recruiting and has teaching experience in private business and higher education. Green replaces April Hill, who accepted a new position with Hurricane City.

Green is a native Californian that relocated to Cedar City, Utah over 10 years ago. She served as a volunteer for Southern Utah’s only seven-day, family music event Groovefest, and also served as its volunteer assistant director for three years. Green has a master’s degree in Education and Instructional Design, and a bachelor’s degree in marketing.

Derek Morton, Iron County Care and Share Board Member, said “We are thrilled to have Peggy lead the Care and Share. She joins us at a crucial time for the organization, as it continues its battle against chronic homelessness and hunger in our community.”

Steve Bradbury, chairman of the Iron County Care and Share Board of Trustees, said, “We are very grateful to have Peggy lead our important shelter and food pantry. The job requires equal parts of steel and heart and she is the perfect fit. Peggy is a remarkable woman who brings a strong business sense and enthusiasm that will translate into great success for our entire community.”
