BCHA announces board members

PHILIPPI–Barbour Community Health Association (BCHA) announces the appointment of two new members to its Board of Directors. Joining the Board of Directors to serve three-year terms are Tonya Cooper and Amanda Sisson.

“BCHA is pleased to welcome these community leaders to the Board. Their experience and leadership will strengthen BCHA’s mission and values into the future,” said Eric Ruf, CEO.

Cooper is currently a first-grade teacher at Belington Elementary School. For the past 20 years, Cooper has been a patient of either the Belington or Myers Clinic. Along with BCHA, Cooper is committed to the Belington Elementary PTA as treasurer and a lifetime member, LSIC committee and the Leadership committee at Belington Elementary School and teaching Sunday and Bible school. Particular interests she hopes to address in healthcare are customer service and patient needs.

Sisson is currently the chief operations officer at the West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness. As a patient of the Myers Clinic, Sisson commends the high quality of care received. Through her experiences with the West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness, Sisson feels she can better represent the needs of people who may be experiencing homelessness in Barbour County to BCHA and be a leader in innovative practices to improve healthcare for West Virginia’s neediest residents.
