The United Way of the Coalfield has hired Sean Mooningham as its new executive director.  

Mooningham, of Central City, started the position January 4 and replaces former longtime director Chip Tate, who retired last year.  

“We are very excited to have Sean Mooningham as our new Executive Director,” said Rufus Baker, Chair of the Board of Directors. “He is personable, well connected in Hopkins and Muhlenburg counties, and excited for the opportunity to work with our eleven partner agencies. We look forward to working with Sean in the future as we continue to build on the past successes of our United Way.”

Mooningham was previously assistant director of Central City Tourism and serves on the board of directors of the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce and Muhlenberg Rotary Club and is Vice President of the Muhlenberg Arts Advisory Council.  

“This area has always been my home,” said Mooningham, “and the people here are my friends and family. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with and for the people of the Coalfield.”

The United Way of the Coalfield is a non-profit, volunteer organization partnered with 11 agencies to provide health and human services in Hopkins and Muhlenberg Counties since 1972.
