A respected community member known for many years of clinical nursing experience has been appointed to the TriCounty Board of Health. Just months into her retirement from the Uintah School District, Shanna Wheeler accepted the appointment to the Board of Health, bringing with her 42 years of nursing experience. “We are excited to have Shanna with her many years of clinical experience,” shares TriCounty Health Director Jordan Mathis. “We feel that having Shanna on board will further strengthen school and community relationships and we’re excited to have her perspective and experience.” Mathis also shared his gratitude and well wishes for former board member Tod Tesar who chose to step down to focus on personal matters. “We’ll miss Todd,” shares Mathis. “He was a great board member and we all wish him the best.” Wheeler will fill the rest of Tesar’s term on the TriCounty Board of Health through December 2017.
