Lutheran Services Carolinas announces staff changes

New positions

Rich Duncan

Katie Scarvey

Rich Duncan has joined Lutheran Services Carolinas as chief development officer and Katie Scarvey, as director of communications.

Duncan’s background in nonprofit fundraising is a natural fit for the agency. Most recently, he served as senior director of mission funding for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in Chicago. Before that, he was executive director of development at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory.

Duncan, who succeeds the recently retired Betty Kuhn, graduated with a bachelor of science degree from Lenoir-Rhyne and earned a master of business administration degree at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida.

Scarvey has been a communications specialist for six years. She will be responsible for overseeing communications and also assume the responsibilities for community relations and marketing now held by Mary Ann Johnson, the retiring director of community relations.

Before joining Lutheran Services in 2013, Scarvey worked for 10 years as an award-winning journalist with the Salisbury Post. Before that, she was an instructor in English at Catawba College.

Scarvey has an undergraduate degree in English from Wake Forest University and earned a master’s degree in English from James Madison University.

Based in Salisbury, Lutheran Services Carolinas provides an array of senior services in North Carolina as well as foster care, adoption and mental health services; refugee resettlement; disaster case management; and residential care for people with disabilities in both North Carolina and South Carolina.
