CULLMAN, Ala. – Stephanie Lawson was introduced by Chairman Jeff Clemons Tuesday evening as the new Commission on Aging director. Lawson comes to the Commission on Aging from Cullman County DHR.  

 Lawson said, “I will have been with the Department of Human Resources 23 years in June.” An official start date has not been set as Lawson works out her notice with DHR. She added, “I hear I have big shoes to fill.” Lawson replaces Dusty Baker who resigned from the director position in February.  

Lawson will face immediate challenges as senior centers across the county remain closed due to the pandemic. She said, “That’s my first thing, to get out to the centers and figure out what we can and can’t do right now.”
