Hackett is welcoming a new staff member to start off the 2024 semester. Patty Mikowski previously worked at Western Michigan University as a Business Manager. She spent 15 years in that position before moving over to Hackett as an office administrator
She is replacing Mrs. Preston, who, after 11 years of working in Hackett’s front office, has decided to retire to travel and spend more time with her family. Mrs. Preston has always put a great deal of time into her job and her presence will be greatly missed, but Mrs. Mikowski feels she is up to the task to succeed her.
Mrs. Mikowski said that everyone has been very welcoming and willing to help. She said students and other staff have been amazing in helping her adjust to her new position
She has enjoyed her first few days on the job and has a special connection to the school, as she has a daughter who is a freshman at Hackett this year. She also enjoys spending time with family and spending the summer at the lake in her free time. She hopes to finish out the year strong.
