Cecilia Torres-Bowman has retired from Community Services of Starke County after dedicating 20 years of her life to the organization. She says she’s done a little bit of everything while there.

“For almost 20 years, I’ve done a little bit of everything – mostly with the food pantry and the Energy Assistance Program,” said Torres-Bowman. “I also lent out health equipment and the resource manuals, so there have been quite a few things I’ve been doing.”

Torres-Bowman said that of all the positive experiences she’s had with the organization, she’s going to miss the people most.

“I’ve made a lot of friends and I see them outside of work and they’re always talking to me and asking how I’ve been doing. I’m definitely going to miss the people,” she said.

She said she will be doing a lot of fishing in her retirement. Director Joan Haugh has not yet announced Cecilia’s successor.
