(Jan. 4, 2019) The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore Executive Board of Directors unanimously selected Pamela Gregory as the new president and chief executive officer for the agency.

Gregory, an eight-year veteran of the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore, has been an integral part of the agency’s success serving in various capacities including resource development and most recently as community impact director.

Gregory has served as the interim president/CEO while the board performed a nationwide search in which she applied for the permanent position.

With the board’s endorsement, Gregory will continue to lead the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore as they create positive impact toward building stronger communities through critical programs focusing on education, financial stability and health.

United Way Board Chair Dana Seiler said the agency wanted a solid leader who could build upon the successes and programs already in place.

“After a nationwide search and interviews, we were fortunate to have the best candidate already on the team,” Seiler said. “Mrs. Gregory has a proven record of success in building strong relationships through outstanding leadership and collaboration. The search committee and the entire board are confident she has the experience and skills necessary to lead the UWLES team forward to drive measurable impact and build strategically to ensure the success of our community partners.”

Now in its 74th year, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore provides funding and direct services for over 80 critical programs serving Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester counties.

United Way helps Eastern Shore residents obtain educational success by reducing the achievement gap between low and middle income students, financial stability by advancing the economic security of families and individuals in the community, and good health by improving access to and awareness of local health and wellness services.

United Way provides over $1.6 million to community programs, impacting one of every three individuals on the Lower Shore. For more information on United Way or to get involved, visit or on Facebook @uwles.
