The Spencer County EMA has a new director, following Al Perdue's retirement from the position.
Last week, county commissioners appointed Perdue's daughter, Stephanie Milton, as the new EMA Director.
Melton worked as an administrative assistant in the EMA office over the past two years.
Though she says she has worked in the EMA office, at least part-time, for ten years, Melton says she feels comfortable in her new position and that she is ready for the challenge.
"I'm just looking forward to something that's a new challenge," says Melton. "You know, I'm honored that they picked me for it, and I hope that I can, you know, live up to their expectations."
Melton says her father has accepted a position as the EMA's District Ten Administrator.
