Fayetteville Housing Authority Looks to Fill Leadership Position

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) -- The Fayetteville Housing Authority will open up a nationwide search to fill its executive leadership position.

The board unanimously voted to terminate Deniece Smiley, the former executive director, last week.

The housing authority is responsible for developing safe options for low income families in the city.

Melissa Terry, a board chair for the organization, said they want to cast a wide net to attract the best candidates to fill the position.

The FHA released an official statement, saying in part:

"We will be conducting a national search for a new executive leadership that promotes a progressive and proactive future for our residents and our community. The FHA board is dedicated to doing everything in our power to make this a smooth transition of leadership, with the best interests of our residents and community in mind."
