LEAVENWORTH — In a "passing the baton" ceremony on Jan. 21, the Wenatchee River Institute (WRI) will celebrate a change of leadership from outgoing Executive Director Carolyn Griffin-Bugert, who has retired, to incoming Executive Director Canuche Terranella. At the ceremony, board member Gro Buer will also be honored for contributions as a donor, volunteer and board member for eight years.

Terranella said about Buer, “She pushes us hard about how to serve the kids of the lower valley. She’s weeding the garden. What a spectacular leader that is.”
