The Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees has welcomed two new members – Michael Cox of Huntingtown and Lynette Entzian of Lothian. The 11-member board is comprised of local residents who volunteer their time and talents to raise funds for expansion projects, new technology and healthcare scholarships.
Cox, a Registered Financial Consultant and president of Calvert Wealth Management in Dunkirk, brings special expertise in financial management, marketing and planning to his new role. He has also accepted the position of the CMH foundation’s treasurer.
A lifelong resident of Calvert County, Cox is a graduate of the University of Maryland where he obtained a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering and business management. He went to complete his graduate certificate in financial planning at Georgetown University.
Active in the community, he has served on the Calvert County Community Fund and on the board of trustees at Huntingtown United Methodist Church. Cox helps build homes each summer in central Appalachia through the Appalachia Service Project. He is also a member of the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce.
As a young man, he was involved with the hospital through his former work at the volunteer fire department. He also worked at CMH in respiratory therapy during college breaks.
“I understand the important role a hospital plays in a local community through all phases of life,” said Cox, “and want to ensure CMH remains a top performing hospital that is respected, trusted and there for you when needed.”
As vice president of her family’s excavating business, Entzian is in charge of recruitment, management training and marketing. She has also been negotiating and resolving conflicts within the construction industry for over 17 years.
Entzian studied business management at the University of Maryland University College as well as mediation at Howard Community College. Currently, she serves as vice president of the Business and Community Advisory Board, which creates programs that provide opportunities for Southern High School students by bridging the classroom experience with the practical skills necessary for transitioning to college and the business community.
In addition to chairing the sponsorship committee for this year’s CMH ball, she has helped raise funds for Anne Arundel Medical Center, Saint Jude, End Hunger in Calvert County and area food pantries. Entzian has also served as a Cub Scout leader, 4-H leader, dance teacher for young children and fitness instructor for seniors. She and her family are also members of the Chesapeake Church in Huntingtown.
“My involvement with the hospital and our community,” said the mother of four “is a direct result of the blessings my family and I have experienced. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the hospital in this new role with the foundation’s board of trustees.”
They join board members Schrader B. Grady, II, of Fantasy World Entertainment, retired learning specialist Michelle Frazer of Chesapeake Beach, Kathy Dickinson of Dickenson Jewelers and Karen O’Brien of Curtis Homes. The foundation board also includes Robin Henshaw of PraiseVoice Studio, Dr. Y. Renee Bright of Calvert Internal Medicine Group and CMH board member Donald M. Parsons, Jr.
In addition to Cox, the officers for the coming year are Prince Frederick attorney Mark Davis, president; Terri Wolfley, vice president and Cindy Parlett, secretary.
Established in 1989, the CMH Foundation organizes several major fundraisers throughout the year, including a casino night, golf tournament and black-tie gala. For more information about the foundation’s activities or to make a gift, call 410-535-8178 or or click here, to contribute online.
