Bill Brent Takes Over As Red Cross Director For Hancock, Harrison & Pearl River Counties

A new man has taken over the helm as director of a local chapter of the American Red Cross. Bill Brent mingled with some community leaders at a welcome reception held in his honor Monday at the Red Cross center in Biloxi.

Brent was just hired as the new director of the Red Cross chapter that oversees Hancock, Harrison and Pearl River Counties. Brent shared with WLOX News his vision for the local organization.

"We're looking at strengthening our infrastructure. We're looking at increasing, obviously, our giving, and how we can partner with our community the most effectively," Brent said.

Brent replaces former director Oscar Barnes who vacated the position earlier this year to work at an Alabama branch of the American Red Cross.
