EP!C (a non-profit agency serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities) has announced the recent additions of Karen Whalen, Senior Vice President Community Markets Consumer Business Director at Associated Bank, Lisa LeConte, Attorney at Heyl Royster, and Janelle Harre, Business Support Manager at Caterpillar to its Board of Directors. In addition, Travis Shock, an agent with Unland Companies, has been appointed to the EP!C Foundation Board of Directors.
“I am pleased that we have these four outstanding additions to our boards,” said Kim Cornwell, EP!C’s Chief Executive Officer. “Each of these individuals, with their diverse backgrounds, bring strong expertise in a variety of fields to our already outstanding team.”
EP!C is a community of families, staff, volunteers, and community members working together to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families with unique educational, residential, employment, and care programs tailored to each individual’s abilities and needs. We began as a small, community-organized network of Peoria families in 1950 who took an innovative approach to disability by emphasizing ability over disability. We have since grown to serve more than 400 individuals of all levels of ability in Peoria and Tazewell counties from funding to finding the best program and service match.
