Urban League of Portland Chief Executive Officer Vanessa R. Gaston is leaving Portland for a new job in Nevada.
Gaston has accepted the position of assistant director of social services for Clark County, Nevada, said Charles Wilhoite, Chair of the Urban League of Portland Board of Directors. Gaston begins her new duties in Las Vegas in July.
"Vanessa has been a tremendous leader for the Urban League, and she will be sorely missed," Wilhoite said.
