“I am excited to bring my program coordination experience to The CALL and continue the good work that has been done southwest Arkansas,” Boyett said. “I am most excited about relationship building to meet the foster care needs in our part of the state. I look forward to partnering with churches and community organizations to recruit, encourage and equip foster families.”
Boyett is the daughter Budd and Sharon Dunson, and granddaughter of the late Faye and Floyd Dunson, all of Nashville. She taught school at Nashville Junior High for five years.
The CALL will host a community coffee at the Hope Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, Aug. 23. The public is invited to attend. Community coffee events in Prescott and Nashville are pending as well. The organization will also host their annual Souper Sunday fundraiser the first Sunday in October.
