Welcome, Sister Sharon!

New executive director starts June 1

NRVC staff and members extend a warm welcome to NRVC's new executive director, Sister Sharon Dillon, S.S.J.-T.O.S.F., who begins the job June 1.

Dillon, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis, brings a wide array of experience to the position. She was vocation director for her community for 10 years and served as executive director for the Franciscan Federation for six years. In the past 25 years she also co-founded, directed, worked at, and served on the board of several nonprofits that specialize in providing hospitality and support for people with intellectual and medical/physical challenges. Dillon has a master’s in education, is certified in special education and physical education, and is a Franciscan spiritual director.

Dillon succeeds Brother Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C., who became vicar general of his community last September after serving at NRVC for 14 years. 

The NRVC Board conducted a national search with an extensive interview process by a committee consisting of Sister Mary Rowell, C.S.J.; Brother Ronald Hingle, S.C.; Sister Josita Colbert, S.N.D.deN.; Sister Priscilla Moreno, R.S.M.; Father Ralph O’Donnell; Sister Mary Bendyna, O.P.; and Mr. Len Uhal.

“The board was impressed by the depth and breadth of Sister Sharon’s experience,” says Board Chair Brother Ronald Hingle, S.C. “We are confident that she will carry on the vision and legacy of inclusion and professional excellence passed on by our prior executive directors and effectively advance the mission of NRVC during her tenure.”
