A local organization for children with disabilities has announced a leadership change on its board of trustees.

Cindi Coughlin of Walpole will succeed Glenn Galloway of Keene as chairwoman of the board of Cedarcrest Center for Children with Disabilities, the Keene nonprofit organization announced in a recent news release.

Coughlin, who recently retired as senior vice president of patient care and chief nursing officer at Cheshire Medical Center, has served on Cedarcrest’s board since 2013. She was honored in October with the Leslie A. Smith President’s Award by the N.H. Hospital Association for her dedication to the quality of patient care.

In additional board business, Matthew Goodwin, web strategist project manager at Paragon Digital Marketing, was elected to a three-year term on the board, according to the release.
