Let Me Introduce Myself
Hello Chamber Members!
I would like to briefly introduce myself. I was born and raised here in Estherville. My parents are Roger and Laurel Hash. After graduating from ELC I went to Iowa Lakes Community College for one year and received an A.A. degree in Accounting. After ILCC I transferred to Minnesota State University in Mankato and received my bachelors degree in Finance and Business this May. For the past two summers I have worked at the Chamber as the Events Coordinator. So fortunately for me, I have some experience in planning Flight Breakfast, Sweet Corn Days and more. I really look forward to working with all of you and getting to know you all better. Please feel free to pop in anytime, my door is always open.
