Nancy O’Keefe is retiring as the executive director of the Historic Third Ward Association after 20 years.

O’Keefe planned to leave her post at the end of 2016, but has stuck around for a few more weeks.

“My retirement path has slowed a bit with November and December events and holidays and it didn’t give me much time to clean out my 20 years of files and “stuff,”  so, at least for a few more weeks, I’m still here!!,” O’Keefe wrote to association members.

Stephanie Sherman will be the part-time, interim director of the Historic Third Ward Association until O’Keefe is replaced.

Sherman, the former executive director of the Westown Association, former co-owner of Lela Boutique and a non-profit and small business consultant.
