WATERTOWN — Following last month’s departure of Watertown Urban Mission Executive Director Dawn M. Cole, the search for a new leader has ended with a familiar face. Cherelyn “Cher” A. VanBrocklin has been named the next executive director, effective Aug. 1.

Before she assumes the position, Ms. VanBrocklin will be mentored in the coming weeks by interim executive director James “Jim” P. Scordo. He began his role upon the departure of Ms. Cole, whose last day with the Mission was June 14.
