Evelyn Post is the CEO of a large nonprofit serving the elderly and disabled, providing a variety of in-home support services for those who desire to “age in place” at home. She has degrees in English and Business Education and is a former teacher and licensed social worker. Evelyn found her niche early in life, however, as an advocate for the senior population. Her advocacy for more and better programs for frail seniors, the terminally ill and the disabled population has resulted in many invitations to serve on boards and committees throughout the state of WV.
As an elected County Commissioner (6 years) and Board of Education member (22 years), she has been instrumental in numerous infrastructure projects in her home county. She also established the Evelyn Post Scholarship in 2003, which has awarded nearly $200,000 in scholarships to deserving students.
Evelyn was recently honored by her alma mater, Glenville State University, with the Distinguished Community Achievement Award.
Life hasn’t always been easy, however, for Evelyn; she comes to PALTOWN’S Board of Directors having lost her daughter Pam to colorectal cancer in 2018 and her spouse in 2017 to cancer. Her daughter Betsy is very active in COLONTOWN’s groups for colorectal cancer patients and caregivers.
