After working full-time many years, Judy Baker has announced she will be starting a new chapter in her life.
Baker steps down as CEO of the Mogollon Health Alliance (MHA), a position she has held for much of the past decade.
Baker has guided the organization from one employee to several and extended its influence throughout the community.
From the Black and White Ball, Gracie Lee Haught Children’s Memorial Fund, scholarships, grant assistance for fire departments and first responders, motivating senior volunteers and mentoring young adults, Baker has served as the lead in one of Payson’s most influential organizations.
She excelled at fund-raising with an extensive base of community contacts, the MHA announced in a press release.
“A remarkable career, marked by many successes was facilitated by her attention to details, her work ethic and her “take charge” attitude coupled with her extensive recollection of the current and historic places, events and people of Rim Country.”
Baker plans to stay in the community and offer her skills, but at a more relaxed pace.
“The past few years have been the worst years economically in more than a lifetime,” said Kenny Evans, MHA board president.
“Through these tough times, Judy has offered steady leadership and a tireless work ethic. Her efforts have made MHA stronger and our community better.
“We wish her the very best as she moves forward in this new and exciting chapter of her life.”
