Newport Nonprofit Names New Executive Director

A Newport nonprofit announced a leadership change on Thursday.

Mentoring Plus - the York Street-based organization that offers support to at-risk teenagers and their families - announced that Chris Saunders will take over as executive director. 

Mentoring Plus stated in a news release that the transitional action was long-planned, and that founder and previous executive director Kevin Kennedy will remain involved, along with his wife, Brenda.

The Kennedys offered their time over the past nine years on a volunteer basis, the announcement stated.
