EOA Deputy Heads Social Services
Archbishop Thomas Donnellan has approved the appointment of Clint Rodgers, deputy administrator of Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc., as chairman of the board of directors of the Department of Catholic Social Services for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
The board serves as a policy making body for Catholic Family Services, Village of St. Joseph, Office of Volunteers and other Catholic-sponsored social service groups.
In accepting his appointment, Rodgers committed himself to setting up a way whereby those who are served by the various social agencies could be heard by members of the board.
Rodgers, a member of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Atlanta, has been with Economic Opportunity Atlanta since its first full year of operation. He has held several responsible positions with EOA, including director of VISTA, director of South Fulton Neighborhood Service Center, and associate administrator for Manpower. He has been deputy administrator since July, 1969.
A graduate of Emory University, Rodgers has been a captain in the United States Air Force. Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers live with their four children.
The archbishop named four others to the board:
Mary Margaret Carr, Mrs. Albert Davis, Mrs. Charles F. Johnson and Mary Mock.
