SUGAR GROVE—John Wu, director of Emergency Management and Safety at Waubonsee Community College, has been selected to serve as chairman of the board of directors for the Fox Valley United Way.
Wu, of Naperville, was pre-elected to the position a year ago, when the board selected him as its vice-chairman for 2013-14.
He will serve a one-year term as chairman.
In that role, Wu will work with the organization’s chief executive officer to set strategic direction for the Fox Valley United Way and coordinate the board’s activities and the organization’s public events.
Fox Valley United Way exists to support communities in the Aurora area by measurably improving lives of area residents working in partnership with dozens of other area agencies.
Wu said he is looking forward to the opportunity to serve in leadership on the board.
“It’s another opportunity to contribute to the area,” Wu said.
