Jones Leaves Manor for Richland 2

BLYTHEWOOD – The Town’s Events and Conference Center Director for the Manor, Martha Jones, has resigned that position after just a year to become the Director of Strategic Partnerships for Richland School District 2. Jones applied for the position with the District in October and the School Board voted on a consent agenda to hire her at their regular meeting on Jan. 14.

Jones, who was a teacher in the District for 15 years, was hired by Town Hall in January of 2013 to oversee special events planned by the Town and to manage rentals for The Manor. A press release from the District said she would assume her duties with Richland 2 in February and described her new job as “developing and sustaining positive community relations through strategic partnerships with civic organizations, faith-based organizations, parents and the Richland Two community.”

The District also announced the hiring of Elizabeth Roof as Executive Director of Communications to replace Ken Blackstone who left the District in October.
