On Sunday community members gathered together to celebrate the retirement of a man who has impacted many lives in Van Wert County.
Today the Van Wert County Foundation and the Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation hosted an open house for Paul Hoverman at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.
For more than 15 years Hoverman has held several roles in Van Wert County such as the director of the Van Wert County Foundation and his recent role as the executive director of the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.
Hoverman said he is grateful for the opportunity he has had to showcase the great performances that take place in Van Wert County.
“It’s been a great experience I think some of the best things is being able to bring performances and events here for people to make them happy and give them entertainment and the best thing is just seeing smiles on people’s faces,” said Hoverman.
Tafi Stober, the former Niswonger marketing director will be taking Hoverman's place as Executive Director.
