Coffee Regional Medical Center has welcomed Walda Kight as the new director of the CRMC Foundation.
In her new role, Kight will be responsible for building community relationships, promoting organizational awareness and garnering support for Coffee Regional Medical Center and its efforts through grants, fundraising, credits, endowments, and donations.
The CRMC Foundation supports Coffee Regional by providing resources for programs, expanding services, upgrading equipment, and fostering community partnerships and outreach.
“We are pleased to have someone of Walda’s character leading our Foundation. We are confident she will bring fresh ideas and exceed our expectations in connecting donors and supporters with the mission of Coffee Regional,” said Vicki Lewis, President and CEO of Coffee Regional Medical Center.
Walda brings a wealth of foundation experience to CRMC. Before accepting this role, for more than a decade, Mrs. Kight successfully served in a key role for fundraising and development for South Georgia State College. In addition, she oversaw alumni relations, public relations, internal communications and community outreach. She also served as liaison and provided administrative support for the SGSC Foundation, Inc. Kight was recently hired after CRMC conducted a lengthy search to fill this important role here at Coffee Regional.
She is married to the Honorable Jeff Kight, Superior Court Judge in the Waycross Judicial Circuit and together they have two children, Brandon, 18 and Lauren, 15. Walda was raised in Coffee County and after completing school and living eight years in Columbus, Georgia, she and her husband returned to Douglas to live near family and raise their children. A graduate of the University of Georgia, she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 1995.
“I am proud to call Coffee County my home and I am excited to be part of an organization that is such a vital part of the community I love,” said Kight. “It will be a privilege to work alongside the dedicated leadership team, staff, physicians, caregivers, volunteers, and donors of CRMC.”
