Greene Lamp Welcomes New Human Resources Director

Carmen Mitchell-Cherry 




Carmen Mitchell- Cherry began her journey in Human Resources over 20 years ago at a local manufacturing company. In 2009, she walked into her destiny with Greene Lamp Community Action where she began her tenor as the WIOA/CSBG Receptionist and Program Assistant. Soon after, her work began to speak for her and she was promoted to WIOA/CSBG Program Assistant II. In 2015, she was afforded the opportunity to become Greene Lamp’s “FIRST” Data Manager for the Early Head Start program. After demonstrating her passion and commitment to her profession, community action, and Greene Lamp as a whole, she was promoted to the Executive Assistant.  While assuring the needs of the Executive Director were being met, Mrs. Cherry also began exhibiting her abilities to assure the needs of other employees’. As such, HR Generalist was added to her title along with Executive Assistant. As HR Generalist, Mrs. Cherry was determined to increase her knowledge relating to Human Resources by obtaining countless training hours to assure such.

In staying in line with making history as the “FIRST”, Greene Lamp Community Action is ecstatic to welcome Carmen Cherry as the new and “FIRST” Human Resources Director!

We are most excited as we look forward to her vision, faithfulness, and commitment to the establishing of a much-needed department, as she continues to walk into her destiny!!!


Congratulations Mrs. Carmen Mitchell-Cherry!
