FORWARD Worthington announces that Jaime Salinas will be the organization’s new executive director effective May 22.

Salinas volunteered on the King Turkey Day Board for seven years, co-founded and helped organize the Worthington’s Best Margarita event and is a volunteer firefighter for the Worthington Fire Department.
