It’s a decision that Community Education Director Michelle Otis says will help Andrews continue to be involved with the center while giving her a more flexible schedule with reduced hours and responsibilities.
“We’re doing our best to blend her needs with our needs and I’m sure it will work out,” Otis said.
Currently, Andrews is responsible for almost every aspect of the center, including programming, according to Otis, so the center is looking to hire a Program Coordinator that will help manage the current programs while creating new ones.
“We’re kind of excited that we’ll keep the old that were really good, but add some new so that we can continue to meet the communities interest and demands,” she said.
The new position, according to Otis, will be listed on the Hartland Schools website the week of April 9.
The hiring of the new position will free up much of Andrew’s time, according to Otis, giving the senior center director more opportunity to give attention to and focus on other areas.
“She’s going to be able to teach fitness classes because she loves that and she has a great following,” Otis said.
