CHAMPAIGN -- An interim President and CEO of the United Way of Champaign County has been announced. Tony Clements will fill the post until its board of directors conducts a search to permanently fill the position.

Clements was the long-time Director of Campus Recreation at UI. He joined the United Way's Board of Directors after his retirement and served as its campaign chair.

Outgoing President and CEO, Lyn Jones, credits Clements with one of its most visible projects, "Stuff the Bus." He designed the project after learning about a similar event in Indiana. Clements assumes his position in August.
