ST. CLOUD - After nearly 13 years of service, the United Way of Central Minnesota's CEO is moving on.

Noreen Dunnells was recruited to the St. Cloud area from Connecticut to head up United Way's central Minnesota services.

She's now being called up to the United Way of Lane County, Oregon, which is home to around 350,000 people.

Dunnells says, while she'll dearly miss Minnesota and the people in it, she's excited for this new set of  challenges and personal opportunities.

Dunnells says there have been many highlights in her career in central Minnesota -  but one that stands out is creation of the Imagination Library.

There's no word yet on who will be filling Dunnells' shoes.

Her last day with the United Way is January 20th.
