Corbett goes from Meals on Wheels to United Way
MIDDLEBURY — The United Way of Addison County (UWAC) has hired a familiar face to coordinate its army of community volunteers. Tracy Corbett, who most recently served as the Addison County volunteer coordinator of the Meals on Wheels program run by AgeWell, will now head up UWAC’s Volunteer Center.
“(Corbett) brings 20 years of experience to UWAC and to the community at large,” said Nancy Luke, United Way’s manager of development and marketing. “She is well loved and respected and will continue to be an asset for Addison County.”
Corbett said was “tickled silly” to work for the United Way.
“I am over the moon with joy at being chosen to become part of the United Way of Addison County team. In the words of my dear friend Ann Ross, ‘The UW is woven into the fabric of life in Addison County,’” she said. “It has been an honor to have worked in collaboration with the United Way for 20 years serving the senior population of our county and am excited at the prospect of continuing to work to improve the lives of even more county residents with UW in a vast array of ways!”
Corbett takes over the job from Jesse Brooks, who in recent years has also managed the organization’s Regional Prevention Program (RPP) that delivers anti-drug education to residents ages 12 to 25. Brooks will now become full-time director of the grant-funded RPP, which has grown to a point where it requires more staff time, according to Luke.
