Herman is new PCED director
Trisha Herman is the new Phillips County Economic Development Corporation director and will transition into her new duties this month. She is replacing Julia Biesemeier who has served in the position for two and a half years and is leaving to take a position with Haxtun Hospital as public relations and marketing director.
Herman has been executive director of Phillips County Family Education Services since 2010. Through overseeing daily operations, managing budgets and writing grants, Herman pointed out that her work experience at Family Education Services has — in a large part — helped prepare her for this opportunity.
Because of her community involvement, Herman believes she is a good fit for this position. She is a member of the Holyoke Child Care Center Initiative, the recreation committee, Holyoke Chamber of Commerce and has been an integral part of the Rural Philanthropy Project.
