The CEO of KANZA Mental Health and Guidance Center announced his upcoming resignation with Brown County commissioners at their regular meeting Monday morning.
David Elsbury, along with Virginia Freese, current Director of Business Operations at KANZA, spoke to the commissioners about Elsbury’s resignation. He said he submitted his resignation March 1, noting he needed to make changes in his life and is returning to clinical work which he enjoyed for 20 years before moving in to administrative duties. His last day with KANZA will be March 30.
Elsbury has been an employee at KANZA since 1982 and has served in the capacity as CEO since August 2006.
Freese will serve as interim CEO until a permanent replacement has been hired for KANZA, which serves Brown, Doniphan, Nemaha and Jackson counties.
Elsbury thanked the commission for their continued support of KANZA during his tenure and said he believes the Center’s mental health services are critical to the community.
