St. Joseph Today Board Chair Deb Sailor, of Jimmy Johns in St. Joe, says she’s excited to have Zapal joining the team, adding, “I have great confidence in her leadership and work experience and have high expectations that she will be an amazing executive director and do great things for St. Joseph Today and all of its members.”
Zapal will take on the new role next month.
