An Ohio University administrator is now taking on a second job as chairwoman of the board of directors of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce.
Becky Watts, chief of staff to OU President Roderick McDavis, was inducted Wednesday night as chairwoman, after serving as vice chair last year.
Watts says that this new position is an honor.
She says she brings some important ideas to the table when it comes to business, the economy and Ohio University.
"I think it's important for us to make those connections and talk about ways that we can really create a network of support that supports everyone who lives and works and studies in the Athens community," says Watts.
Watts job in the president's office will not change due to the new role with the chamber.
As chairwoman, Watts hopes to work closely with local businesses and their student customers.
