Columbia, Mo. (July 7, 2014) – Dr. Michael Korenfeld and Missy Carr, two members of the Washington community, will join Saving Sight’s board of directors in the 2014-2015 fiscal year. Dr. Korenfeld, an ophthalmologist and owner of Comprehensive Eye Care Ltd, will join the board for his first three-year term as a community board member. And Missy Carr, a member of the Washington Lions club, will be seated for a one-year term as the new Vice-Council Chairperson of the Missouri Lions.

“Our board members provide crucial oversight to help us achieve our goals,” said Chief Executive Officer Tony Bavuso. “Lion Missy and Dr. Korenfeld are going to bring a fresh perspective to our organization’s strategy this year.
