For the last 2 years, The Hub had the honor, privilege, and the daily blessing to have Bolton Littlefield among our ranks. Bolton was a perfect employee that interacted with the teens flawlessly. We wish them nothing but a blessed life as they pursue their career on “Sesame Street” replacing one of the Yip Yips. TMZ reports that Bolton is set to wed “The Hunger Game’s” character Haymitch. God speed Bolton, we love you. (DBDBDBD)
Notes for the Bristol Hub’s C.A.B. meeting on September 11th.
Meeting starts at 6:05PM
In attendance, Ryan Krushenick, Chuck, Darla Senecal, John Kromer.
Ryan Starts with updates from the The Hub following introductions.
Ryan states the following:
Today was CB’s (Claire Bolton Littlefield) last day. They will be sorely missed and left on great terms and will be very missed by the staff and teens.
James Lockridge, the former Hub director will be stepping in as a temporary employee to fill CB’s shoes for awhile. The teens seem very excited about this.
I have held 4 interviews for our Americorps position (special note, at the time this is posted this number will be 5) And we are confident we find a strong candidate.
We have reached out to one candidate named Jasmine, very strong and bright prospect.
We are currently hiring to replace CB’s position, we have adds on our website, Craigslist, and in the Addison.
