Kasey Blesh New Downtown Manager

LOCK HAVEN – The Downtown Lock Haven Inc. Board of Directors has hired a new downtown manager with the departure of Natasha Gorham.

In a unanimous vote on Tuesday, the board named Kasey Blesh to replace Gorham, who has been named administrative assistant of the North Central District AIDS Coalition, with its office in Mill Hall. Gorham served as downtown manager for four years.

Blesh worked for more than three years for the Lock Haven University Foundation, becoming coordinator of alumni relations. A former student athlete at LHU, she earned a bachelor of science in recreation management in 2012 from the university.

A resident of Lock Haven, she is a civilian member of Team RWB, an active Millbrook Playhouse board member and the Great Island Adventure Triathlon awards coordinator.

Downtown Lock Haven is a self-sustaining, 501(c)3 agency that works with community partners to revitalize the Main Street district through community and economic development programs.
