Two members of the Washington community, Dr. Michael Korenfeld and Missy Carr, will join Saving Sight’s board of directors in the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

Korenfeld, an ophthalmologist and owner of Comprehensive Eye Care Ltd., will join the board for his first three-year term as a community board member.

Carr, a member of the Washington Lions Club, will be seated for a one-year term as the new vice council chairperson of the Missouri Lions.

“Our board members provide crucial oversight to help us achieve our goals,” said Chief Executive Officer Tony Bavuso. “Lion Missy and Dr. Korenfeld are going to bring a fresh perspective to our organization’s strategy this year. I’m sure we will be able to change more lives by saving sight through their engagement and support.”

As the State Sight Project of the Missouri Lions, Saving Sight has nine Missouri Lions and four community members on its board.

Directors actively participate in long-range planning and secure financial resources to support sight-saving programs such as KidSight and cornea donation and transplantation.

The board members also enhance Saving Sight’s public standing by sharing the mission, accomplishments, and goals with the general public, Lions clubs and other partner organizations.

For more information, people may visit www.saving-sight.org or contact Annie Kuhl, chief communication officer, at 800-283-1982, extension 101, or email akuhl@saving-sight.org.
