POPS announces new president

Kingfield POPS bids farewell to president of 10 years

KINGFIELD — With the New Year comes new leadership roles for the Kingfield POPS Board of Directors as Cheryl Pike, previously vice president, steps up as the new president and Donald Tranten leaves that position after 10 years of presidency, even more years served on the board and as a founding member of the organization.

Tranten leaves this position with memories of watching multi-generational traditions be created right before his eyes, seeing the behind-the-scene contributors and supporters making it all happen, young kids dancing and enjoying the music, and being a part of the music himself. Tranten pays tribute to his other board members and directors throughout the years who all share in the success and work that has been accomplished. Tranten will continue on the board in the role of vice president.

This determination and hard work from years past has inspired Pike to continue traditions and start new ones. Having served on the board since 2014, she was first drawn to the committee by her passion for working with the POPS’ school programs. Pike says she is amazed by the amount of work that happens by the board and many volunteers to bring the June event to the Kennedy Field each year. The group is a “strong, committed, cohesive unit” that continues to grow and expand the music scene in Franklin County.
