HOISINGTON — Stacey Bressler, who has worked the last 26 years as the Hoisington Chamber of Commerce executive vice-president, has submitted her resignation to the board of directors.
“It was a tough decision,” said Bressler. “The last year has been so hard on me.”
Her husband, Troy, passed away one year ago, and Stacey said she had no family left in the area.
“It’s something I needed to do,” she said. “I need to be with family.”
Her mother lives in Fayetteville, Ark. and she has children in Newton, which are two places that she is considering moving.
“Unfortunately for us, Stacey has tendered her resignation as executive vice-president of the Hoisington Chamber of Commerce,” said Brian Wilborn, president of the board of directors. “She has agreed to stay with us until the end of the year hopefully providing sufficient time for us to get someone hired and trained before she leaves. We need to thank her for her 26 years of devotion to Hoisington and the Chamber.
“The executive committee of the board is assessing our situation, and in the near future we will announce our opening to find a replacement,” he said. “We will make every attempt to hire a person or persons who loves Hoisington and who will be a cheerleader for our members and our community.”
“I want this position to be filled by someone who cares,” for Hoisington and the business community, said Bressler.
Bressler moved to Hoisington in January, 1982 after having grown up in Hays. She married Troy Bressler in August, 1982.
“Please keep Stacey and her family in your prayers as she starts a new chapter in her book of life,” said Wilborn. “She will certainly be missed but not forgotten.”
