MREA Administrative Assistant Cindy Gerber announced her resignation last December after 15 years.  She has worked with five Executive Directors (Vernae Hasbargen, Dennis Rettke, Jerry Ness, Lee Warne and Fred Nolan), many board members and countless school district superintendents and administrative assistants. Her dedication, accuracy and hard work for MREA will be greatly missed when she leaves this summer.
