MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – The senior service provider Wartburg, headquartered in Mount Vernon, recently named two new members to its Board of Directors.

Clesont Mitchell, former operations director of New York City’s Harlem Village Academy, and Kevin E. Ocker, chairman of Garden City’s board of commissioners of cultural and recreational affairs, will serve Wartburg in several capacities, according to a press release.

Mitchell will serve on the organization’s home board, as well as the mission and ministries committee.

“I lost my mother in December after 20 years of a crippling disease,” Mitchell said in a press release. “Knowing what my sister and I went through in caring for my mom, I know the great need for quality health care and support for all ages.”

“I hope that I may help Wartburg not only continue in the great work that it has done in the past, but continue to grow and evolve as one of the leading healthcare facilities in the nation.”

Ocker will also serve on Wartburg’s home board, and on its real estate committee.

“Having been responsible for the delivery of heart healthy activities and programs to diverse populations, I am well aware of the importance of supporting facilities and infrastructure play in the delivery of these services,” Ocker said in a press release.

“As a new board member I look forward to supporting the mission and vision of Wartburg and ultimately enriching the lives of others in such a professional atmosphere.”
