United Methodist Village names new CEO
LAWRENCEVILLE - An area woman has been named chief executive officer of The United Methodist Village (UMV) in Lawrenceville.

The UMV Board of Directors have announced the appointment of Paula McKnight to the CEO position. She will start her career at the UMV on Oct. 14. McKnight will replace Bob Benson, who was hired on a temporary basis almost a year ago.

A news release issued by United Methodist Vilalge said "the UMV board has been committed to providing leadership to a dedicated team of employees and modeling a great compassion for our residents; the focus and purpose of our ministry as the United Methodist Village."

The release said McKnight comes to UMV "as a highly recommended licensed nursing home administrator in the State of Illinois. "

In her role at the UMV, McKnight will oversee the work of all the UMV ministries. For the present time, she will also serve as the Administrator of the North Campus.

McKnight has been an administrator for 12 years at various locations and as a consultant for seven years at a number of long-term care facilities around the state. McKnight is originally from Flora, but has lived in Olney for the past 24 years. She also attends the St. Paul United Methodist Church in Olney.

"I'm very excited to be joining the UMV family. The Village has always had an excellent reputation", said McKnight. "The fact that the Village is a non-profit facility and is affiliated with the United Methodist Church adds to that excellent reputation."

McKnight has experience working closely with residents, families, staff and volunteers. She said her goal is to improve the life experience of those living and working within the organization.
