From 1-4 p.m. on June 7, the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency held an Open House going away party for executive director Sara Bixby.
The party served cake and coffee and had flowers decorating the tables. There was a basket for guests to leave cards to give Bixby well wishes for her future success.
Bixby has worked as the executive director at SCISWA for ten years and five months. She will now be moving to Silver Spring, Maryland, where she has accepted a job she applied for as Deputy Executive Director for Administration, Information Technology & Financial Management at the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA). When asked what she has enjoyed most about her job at SCISWA over the years, Bixby says, “The people, it’s got to be the people. I mean, it’s pretty awesome that people come out like this when someone is leaving.”
