Barton named program manager at Memory Makers

The Board of Directors of Respite Day Services of Oxford Inc. welcomes Amy Barton as the new program manager of its Memory Makers Respite Day Program.

Barton has been a “full-time volunteer” at Memory Makers for the past several months, and during that time, she has demonstrated her skills in working with older adults and in handling many of the day-to-day activities that make the program run smoothly.

She joins Dianne Arnold and a host of dedicated community and student volunteers who entertain and challenge participants in the Memory Makers program each day.

Barton and her husband Clarke moved to Oxford from Colorado in 2002.  They have two daughters, Grace Anne and Kate.

She earned a BSE in early childhood education from Brenau University and a Master of Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Mississippi.

“We look forward to Amy’s expertise in planning and administration and to the enthusiasm and compassion she brings to our program,” said Memory Makers Program Administrator Dianne Arnold.
