Paige Roberson to assume the position July 1.
Sylva’s Town Board named twentyfive year old Jackson County native Paige Roberson as the new town manager last Thursday.
Roberson, who currently serves as Sylva's Main Street Economic Development director and director for the Downtown Sylva Association (DSA), became an assistant to interim Town Manager Mike Morgan in April. Her first official day in her new position will be July 1.
“I am extremely grateful and humbled to be hired as the new town manager,” said Roberson. “I am excited to have the opportunity to serve the town that I grew up in and love so much.” Roberson will replace Morgan, who was hired after forced resignation of previous Town Manager Adrienne Isenhower, last September.
