YWCA of Asheville
The CEO of the YWCA of Asheville has quit, becoming the second Black woman in a month to leave a high-profile job with a mission of improving racial equity in the city.
Asheville City Council plans to conduct public interviews with six finalists on Tuesday, Sept. 8, then vote to make the appointment.
The board voted 6-1 for the new funding, with Commissioner Mike Fryar casting the lone dissenting vote.
Also, the dates for viewing synchronous fireflies in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park have been announced, and more.
The project will also include an edible garden in honor of Asheville chef and activist Laurey Masterton, who died recently.
