22 July 2011

I am pleased to announce that, after a successful search process, Paula Evans has been offered and accepted the position of County Commissioner for Staffordshire.
Paula currently holds the appointment of County Training Manager in Staffordshire and is well known to the membership in the County.
Paula comes with a wealth of Scouting experience within the Region and also having experience performing some voluntary tasks at Gilwell.
Paula is married with 2 children.
In her professional life she is a head teacher at a local school.
I would like to thank all of the members of the search committee for their hard work in bringing us to this successful conclusion.
Paula will take over from Jeremy Cotton at the County AGM on 14 September 2011 after a timely handover.
I personally would like to also thank Jeremy for his hard work in Staffordshire and for helping to mentor me as a new County Commissioner several years ago.
