SAFFORD — SEACUS is heading in a new direction.

The board for the nonprofit Southeastern Arizona Community Unique Services , which serves the senior population of Graham and Greenlee counties. Unanimously elected Michael Andazola as its president.

He takes over for Steve Oller, who had served as board president for more than a decade.

“Mike has been an asset to our board; he is always willing to go the extra mile with whatever may be needed and is always looking for ways to be Involved with our senior community,” said Stephanie Nabor, SEACUS executive director. “It was a plus for us as he not only has a presence here in Graham County but in Greenlee as well, where we also provide our Meals on Wheels services.”

Andazola is a Safford City Councilman, sits on the board of directors for the Eastern Arizona College Foundation and is the board chairman of Eastern Arizona Hispanic Heritage Corp.

Andazola isn’t the only change at the organization; Nabor became the new executive director in 2021, following the retirement of Royce Hunt-Bell.

“As for the coming year, we will be seeing new faces on SEACUS’ board, as we do have a few vacancies that open up the door for new ideas and opportunities,” Nabor said.
