Warren — A woman of many hats at the Warren Town Office was honored Dec. 5 by the Board of Selectmen for 25 years of service.

Sherry Howard -- aka finance director, deputy general assistance administrator, motor vehicle registration agent, deputy tax collector, and deputy treasurer -- was presented with a plaque, cards and many hugs by family and town officials.

Board Chairman Wayne Luce made the presentation to Howard on behalf of the town and the board for her years of service.

Howard started working at the Town Office in 1993 as counter clerk, applying for the job on the strong recommendation of past Selectman John Crabtree. She has worked for five town managers.

"The biggest change was when we changed to a fiscal year from a calendar year," she said of major changes she had seen during her tenure. "However, we have gone from doing everything manually to now electronically, which also has had its ups and downs throughout the process."

Howard said although she was very humbled to be recognized, she had to give credit to the team of people she has worked with for her success that has gotten her this far.

"I have served the public to the best of my abilities," she said, noting she enjoys working for the town of Warren and the residents.
