Powell Retires After 16 Years at Windermere

After 16 years of service to Windermere Baptist Conference Center and its guests, Becky Powell announced her retirement beginning February 1.

Becky and Jim PowellBecky and Jim PowellWindermere President and CEO John Bailey noted the impact she has had over her tenure. “The Windermere board of trustees and I recognize that Becky Powell has made tremendous contribution over the last 16 years. She has spent many hours serving the needs of hundreds of people every year. She has specialized in providing a listening ear and hosting all our volunteers and ambassadors.”

Powell said, “It has been my pleasure to work at my ministry at Windermere over these years. I have worked with four presidents and many staff along the way. I have especially loved working with my volunteers, trustees, and Ambassadors, and getting to know them all, and appreciate all they have done for the ministry.”

“I have been blessed with many friendships that I plan to keep forever. I am looking forward to having some time to relax, enjoy my husband, kids and grand-kiddos and play with some hobbies that I haven’t taken time for in quite a while.

I will always love Windermere, but have peace about moving on to this next portion in my life.”

Bailey noted that plans are underway to thank and recognize Powell this spring.

“We will do our best to take up the baton passed from Becky by making sure that her legacy lives on for many years. We will miss her.”
