The Safe Shelter Board announced that Shauna Isbell-Kemp has been named the new executive director of Safe Shelter effective June 1. She will replace Lynne Tally, who served 40 years in the position and announced her plans to retire in June.

Isbell-Kemp has been the University of Jamestown head women's wrestling coach and assistant athletic director. Isbell-Kemp will train with Tally during the month of June before Tally retires.

The Safe Shelter Board said Isbell-Kemp's work and experience guiding and empowering others, writing grants, managing budgets and working with volunteers will be an asset to Safe Shelter.

The Safe Shelter executive director is responsible for staff leadership, fund development including grant writing and reporting, fiscal and budget management, organizational policy development, program development and coordination, collaboration with diverse agencies and organizations, facility management and some direct services for survivors.

Safe Shelter provides crisis intervention and advocacy services for adult survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
