Ontario ARC has selected its next executive director.
The organization announced Monday that Ann Scheetz, who has been the agency’s associate executive director of community services, will become the executive director. Executive Director Bill Castiglione has announced his retirement for this fall.
Scheetz began her career at Ontario ARC in 1984, and has developed an extensive background in all facets of the agency’s core supports, ARC officials said. She has worked in day programs, employment services, family support, teen-to-adult transition, residential and service coordination.
She also has a strong knowledge of state and federal regulations, which has shaped high quality programs for nearly a 1,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in Ontario County, ARC officials said.
“We treat people with dignity and respect,” said Castiglione, who is retiring after more than three decades of service to the agency. “It’s part of our culture— and a tradition that will continue under the leadership of Ann Scheetz. She has a long history with the agency and is going to be a phenomenal executive director.”
Scheetz serves on the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board and NYSARC’s Collaborative of the Finger Lakes, and is a member of the Executive Directors Association of NYSARC.
