WAYNESBORO, PA. - The Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce is losing its executive director just shy of her third anniversary with the entity she says is the "strongest advocate for business and the quality of life in Waynesboro."
"I'll miss everything," MaryBeth Hockenberry said.
Hockenberry is following her husband, Mike, to Hanover, Pa., where he is set to become the vice president of operations of the local hospital on March 12. Mike Hockenberry left his post as Waynesboro Hospital's director of allied services on Friday.
"We have met in 14 years, and in this job, some incredible people," MaryBeth Hockenberry said.
Her last day is April 30.
On Wednesday, the Chamber's 12-member board of directors will discuss the process for finding a replacement, Ronnie Martin said.
"As president of the board, we're sad to see MaryBeth and Mike leave town," Martin said. "They're good people."
He lauded Hockenberry's communication and organizational skills, and said the board will be seeking an enthusiastic person with a knowledge of the Waynesboro area.
