A Salvation Army Captain is expected to take over the reigns of the Hopkinsville branch of the organization next month.
Officials have appointed Mark Czanderna to replace Lieutenant David Costellow, who is being reassigned to Morgantown, West Virginia after several years of dedicated service in serving the less fortunate in Hopkinsville.
Lieutenant Costellow says he has spoken to Czanderna over the phone on several occasions and believes he is the right man for the position.
Lieutenant Costellow says he hopes his replacement will continue the numerous programs that he has started over the past couple of years.
Czanderna’s first day of employment at the Hopkinsville Salvation Army is expected to be Wednesday, June 20th.
While his departure is bittersweet, Costellow says he is looking forward to creating new partnerships in Morgantown, West Virginia, especially with West Virginia University officials since the campus will be in close proximity of his new post.
Costellow’s last day of employment with the local chapter will be Sunday, June 17th.
