Mike Hopkins, vice president of operations at Jarden Zinc Products, will lead the 2013 United Way Campaign when it kicks off on Sept. 12.
The goal for the 2013 campaign is to raise enough funds to help more than 30,000 Greene County residents in 2014, a spokesman said.
Hopkins received his Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Tennessee and joined Jarden Zinc Products in 1992.
He has been deeply involved in the community, coaching Greeneville Department of Parks & Recreation Little League baseball and girls softball teams for eight years.
He is also past president of the Greeneville Noon Rotary club, is a graduate of the Greene County Partnership's Leadership program, and has served as adviser for the Greene Technology Center.
Hopkins is married to Patti Hopkins, and they have three children; Kalei, Ben, and Payton Hopkins. The family attends First Presbyterian Church.
"Mike has been a great asset to United Way since joining the board of directors in 2009. He is committed, energetic, and genuinely cares for our community," said United Way board president Ron Metcalfe.
"With Mike's help, United Way of Greene County will exceed its campaign goal this year to help those who need it in Greene County," Metcalfe added.
