  • Karen Werling: “I would like to join the MVAC Board of Directors to help impact the people of Waseca County. Be able to reach others and reach out discussing low income issues with others. Also other important issues that affect Waseca County residents.
  • Stacie Brinkman: “I would like to learn more about MVAC and what it does. I would like to give back to the organization for the help that I received. I was fortunate to be able to contact MVAC when I was attending school for my LPN. I contacted MVAC and they helped me. They found a program for me to be able to go back to school, and financially help me attain my LPN degree in 2017. In these past two years, I have finished up my RN degree. I was contact about this possible position to sit on the board. I thought it looked interesting; I could learn more about the organization and give back for the help that I received.”
  • Sherry Bell: “I would be very excited to be on the Board of Directors. I went from being ok to extreme low income and have been in customer relations my whole life., I would like to see what else we could do to help the public with situations that come with life. I would be an honor to help.”
