Bloomsburg Welcomes New Board Members

March 11, 2024

Community Giving Foundation: Bloomsburg recently welcomed two new members to its regional Board of Directors.

Brigid Flynn Pugh

Pugh is a retired certified registered nurse practitioner. Raised in the Pennsylvania Poconos, she graduated from Luzerne County Community College and Bloomsburg University with degrees in nursing and a focus on community health. Pugh taught as an adjunct clinical nursing instructor for Bloomsburg University from 2005-2015. She received her certification for CRNP licensure in 2015 and worked as a CRNP in family practice for Geisinger Health System until her retirement in 2021. Pugh has been married for 35 years and raised two sons in the area. She loves to travel—in the past year visiting Italy, St. Croix, Vermont, Wyoming, and Arizona.

My parents set an example of giving their time to the community as my siblings and I were growing up, from volunteering at the local library, assisting with our parish and helping people with filling out tax forms. Their generosity is how I view community giving—not always with money but giving of oneself. I think that returning something to the community is a way of making things possible for others that they may not have or may not have known were available to them. I’m excited to partner with the Foundation board to find additional ways to give back to our local community and to learn from others involved in the Foundation.

Angela Young

Young has been a full-time realtor since 1987, and joined Century 21 Covered Bridges Realty, Inc. in 2005. She has served on her local board of realtors for the past 10 years, which has combined her passion for the industry and giving back to the community.

As a dedicated local realtor, I am thrilled to extend my commitment to community well-being by joining the Community Giving Foundation: Bloomsburg board. My passion for fostering positive change and enhancing the quality of life for residents in our area has driven me to actively participate in programs that make a lasting impact. Serving on the Foundation board will allow me to channel my enthusiasm for community development, philanthropy, and collaboration. I am excited to support the Foundation’s mission, working together to create a stronger community for all.
