Michael Howell has announced his retirement as the executive director of the Huntington County Community Foundation as of the end of 2019.

A retirement open house was held at the Historic Forks of the Wabash on Wednesday, December 11 from 4 to 7 p.m. with a special recognition time at 6 p.m.

Visitors were asked to bring a written memory to give to Howell. Light hors d’oeuvres and retirement cakes were served to those that attended.

“During Howell’s nine years of service, Foundation assets grew by 83% and 30 new endowed funds were created,” according to Marshall Sanders, board member. Sanders also listed Howell’s community involvements as the Huntington Rotary Club, Huntington County Historical Society, Historic Forks of the Wabash, Red Cross of Northeast Indiana, Victory Noll Center, Cosmopolitan Club and Huntington County Honors.

Howell addressed the crowd, shared a couple of stories, thanked everyone for attending and for being a large part of his life at the Foundation.
