Several residents from Southeast Ohio have been appointed to the Governor’s Executive Workforce Board, including one from Athens County.

Gov. Mike DeWine made the announcement Monday. Michelle Greenfield, of Millfield, is among more than two-dozen new members of the Board. Greenfield is a co-founder of Third Sun Solar, an Athens-based solar installation company.

The Governor’s Executive Workforce Board, according to its website, “advises (DeWine) and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation on the development, implementation, and continuous improvement of Ohio’s entire workforce system.”

Monday’s appointments came two days before the board met for a quarterly meeting in Hilliard. The board will next meet in September.

Other members include business leaders and state officials such as Ohio Department of Education’s Supt. Paolo DeMaria and Chancellor Randy Gardner as well as Kimberly Hall, the director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Other new members from Southeast Ohio include Michael Linton of Laurelville and Deborah Saunders of Gallia County.

Members’ terms continue “at the pleasure of the Governor,” according to the appointment news release.
