Family Pathways Announces New Board Member, Keri Uzpen

Family Pathways today announced that Keri Uzpen, Branch President of MidWestOne Bank—St. Croix Falls, WI, was appointed to the organization’s board of directors, returning the board’s size to ten members.  “Keri has extraordinary financial and business expertise, and she is passionate about creating vibrant and economically viable communities where families may live and work,” said Rich Smith, Family Pathways’ Executive Director. “We are thrilled to have her as part of our team.”

Uzpen currently serves on the Polk County Economic Development Corporation board and sits on the City of St. Croix Falls Revolving Loan Fund Committee. She has recently stepped off the Osceola School Board. In the past, she has served as the Treasurer of the Mill Pond Learning Foundation.     

 

Family Pathways currently operates food shelves in Frederic and St. Croix Falls in Polk County, WI.

The organization serves six counties in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin and the City of Forest Lake. 410,543 meals were served through four programs in 2016. Programs include: food shelves and a mobile food truck, aging services, the Refuge Network domestic violence and sexual assault programs and emergency shelter, and teen centers.
