Feb. 16--GREAT BEND -- Even though Sarah Krom recently retired from Sunflower Diversified Services, she is comforted to know that the non-profit agency and the people it serves will remain a big part of her life.

Krom has devoted almost 36 years to people with intellectual disabilities and delays while serving in numerous positions at Sunflower. Her most recent title was chief operating officer.

"I don't intend to just walk away," Krom said. "Sunflower can count on me as an advisor. And I am already on the list for a number of volunteer opportunities."

Krom was first attracted to Sunflower by her mother "who dreamed about more independence and inclusion. But she would be amazed at how far we have come."

A Great Bend High School graduate, Krom held managerial positions in residential, transportation, employment, community habilitation, production, recycling, human resources, and medical supports. She also worked in production sales, community employment, case management, and strategic planning.

"But there comes a time when you need new blood, new energy and new out-of-the-box ideas," Krom noted. "That time is now. It is time for the next generation.

In addition to her local responsibilities, Krom has served on boards at the state level in areas such as transportation and recycling.

Sunflower serves infants, toddlers and adults in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties. It is in its 54th year.
