When someone has held the same position for 23 years, a lot is needed to fill their shoes. The Wartburg Bookstore knew this to be the case as it began their search for a new bookstore manager.
Wartburg hired Heather Patrick to be the new manager after an extensive search, but after only a short time, she is leaving the bookstore position.
Patrick took the position in April and said she has really enjoyed working in the bookstore, being in Waverly and at Wartburg.
“My plan was to work here full time for a year or so before doing part time teaching as well. I realized my heart really wanted to be teaching. It was a hard decision but my heart didn’t want to stop teaching,” Patrick said.
Patrick’s official last day will be Oct. 20 when Janet Huebner will take over.
Huebner is a 2011 Wartburg graduate and will bring her background in business management.
