Sports and Aquatic Center has new director
Greta Smith, former director of the USD 408 Sports and Aquatic Center, is stepping down this week. Smith will go to work at Marion Elementary School, where she worked before becoming the aquatic center’s director.
“I’m getting older and I’m getting worried about the time when I may not be able to pass the certifications need to fill the position,” she said.
Taking her place is former Marion Health Mart employee Heather Calhoun.
“I was ready for a career change and like working and doing things at my own pace, and this job allows that,” she said. “I get to still help the community but in a different way.”
Calhoun’s first day was Nov. 1. She is confident she will fit nicely in the position, and said Smith stay around and teach her the finer points of the job until Friday.
