Members of Quadco’s Administrative and Non-Profit Boards had good words about its Executive Director Bruce Abell after spending most of their regular meeting on Tuesday (Apr. 23) reviewing his annual performance appraisal.
After completing an executive session, Board President Barb Heer said she was pleased with his performance and board member Ruth Ann Osborn said the board was glad to have him as the executive director of the center.
The board members voted to renew his contract for 5 years, making it retroactive to January 1 of this year. The contract does not call for an increase in his salary.
The board members were introduced to Ray Figley from Stryker, who works in the food service program. Chris Tomlinson of Bryan returned to the board meeting, sharing photos of two cars his father used to race.

Chris said he likes the NASCAR Club that meets at Quadco’s Northwest Products program and thought it would be a good idea for Quadco to have its own cruise-in at Stryker.
Shannon Zellers, who was recently promoted as a Program Coordinator at the Stryker building, was introduced to the board members. Ms. Zellers is from Napoleon and has worked at Quadco for 15 years.
She is presently participating in a statewide training program called, “The Good Life.”
She said the program is an intense training that involves 16 weeks of sessions. The training, being led by Willie Jones and Pete Moore of the Ohio Association of County Boards, involves providing a good life and developing success planning for the people being served.
After she completes the training, there will be trainings held for staff members at Quadco.
The next Quadco board meeting will be held on May 28 in the Conference Room at Quadco’s Stryker building.
