Peggy Says Goodbye

Peggy Mahaney is retiring from the Center today, Jan 30, after 21 years of outstanding service. She has been “the glue” for our small business development program REAP, serving our staff of business specialists across the state and our hundreds of clients. It’s our privilege to share her retirement goodbye with you.

It has been an honor to be part of the Center for Rural Affairs for the last 21 years, and I wish to express my appreciation for the Center’s work in rural America issues.
