Volunteer leader

PLATTSBURGH — Swarovski Lighting’s head of human resources, Lee Ann Pray, has been announced as the American Heart Association (AHA) volunteer chairwoman for the annual Go Red for Women Dinner set for Friday, Feb. 1, 2013. She will lead the organization’s appeal to local businesses and community leaders to support the AHA’s mission to build healthier lives free from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by joining the Go Red movement.

“The North Country Go Red for Women Campaign is an opportunity for our community and business leaders to come together and support the fight against cardiovascular disease in women,” Pray said. “Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women and one in three women has some form of cardiovascular disease that is often undetected. Go Red for Women events, like the dinner on Feb. 1, will educate women about their personal risk and give tips towards a healthier life.”

Pray currently serves on several boards including Workforce Investment, Northern Adirondack Safety and Health Council and is an officer in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Keeseville Lodge 2072.

She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from Clarkson University and has received her certification in professional human resources from the Society for Human Resources Management.
