“I am honored and excited to be asked to serve the Rescue Mission. Mary Gay Abbott-Young runs a first class operation. And Bonnie Blair and the rest of the Board are truly dedicated to the cause. It is a responsibility I don’t take lightly,” Karla reflected.
Karla grew up in Mercer County and has seen the positive impact the Rescue Mission has had on individual residents and the community. She was introduced to their good work through her father, Ken Tillman, who served on the Rescue Mission Board prior to moving to Virginia in 2003.
