Angie Winquist officially began her duties last week as Glenwood’s city clerk.
Winquist was hired for the position in August and will replace Judith Groves, who will remain in the office as a deputy clerk.
“I know I have a lot to learn, but I think it’s a really good fit with my background,” Winquist said.
Winquist is a native Iowan who has lived in Mills County since 1983. Her husband, Stan, is a longtime industrial arts faculty member at Glenwood Community High School.
Winquist is a graduate of the Omaha Business College where she later worked as a secretary before beginning a 28-year career at a distribution company where she worked in several capacities, including accounts receivable, credit, customer service, operations, inside sales, inventory reconciliation, budget and training. She was a manager for several years.
“I used to work on the operations side with payroll and I enjoyed the customer service side,” Winquist said. “Those are two areas that I believe make my background a good fit.”
Winquist has been an active member of her church and has served on several community boards, including the Glenwood Booster Club and Dollars For Scholars.
