City hires leader for new Creative Services Center
Cheryl Nash has joined the city of Lee’s Summit as its new creative services manager.
In her role, the city said Nash will lead the creative services team and be responsible for the overall management, direction, and coordination of the Creative Services Center, which includes public relations, communications, branding, marketing, and media services.
Nash most recently worked as the director of communications and development for ReDiscover, where she was responsible for planning, development and implementation of all internal and external marketing strategies, communications, and public relations activities.
“I’m honored to be joining the strong, dedicated and accomplished Creative Services team as the creative services manager,” Nash said in a statement. “The importance the city has placed on communications and citizen engagement by creating the Creative Services Center to serve as a resource and hub for city communications is impressive. As a longtime resident of Lee’s Summit, I’ve been able to see firsthand the important work being done by the city on behalf of our community and as part of this team, I will have the opportunity to communicate that work to our citizenry.”
Highway patrol kicks off annual toy drive
The 15th annual Trooper Michael L. Newton Toy Drive is going on now through Dec. 13.
The toy drive is the cooperative effort of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Kansas Highway Patrol, Murphy-Hoffman Company (Kenworth), Summit Homes, and the citizens the agency serves.
The toy drive is for children who will be spending the holiday season in the hospital. All donations to the toy drive will be delivered to children at the University of Kansas Medical Center and the Ronald McDonald House.
Troopers will deliver the toys personally to the children during the month of December.
Toy donations may be made at all metro Summit Homes models, Troop A headquarters of the Missouri State Highway Patrol in Lee’s Summit, or Troop A headquarters of the Kansas Highway Patrol in Olathe. Donations of electronic games, board games, and new children’s books are encouraged.
The annual toy drive honors Trooper Michael L. Newton, who died in the line of duty in 2003.
