MINT HILL – The Mint Hill Board of Commissioners gave town employee Sheryl Smith a new title at its Feb. 14 meeting.
Smith was hired in 2014 as an executive assistant in the town manager’s office but her new title has been changed to assistant to the town manager. Town Manager Brian Welch said that when Smith was hired, the role was mainly clerical, but it has evolved into a managerial position that has become more involved and sophisticated as Mint Hill has grown.
One of Smith’s responsibilities is organizing town-sponsored events, and Welch said Smith is a valuable employee.
“When we hired her, we knew of all the event planning experience she had when she worked for the University of Michigan Business School, and since that time, she has gone full bore on all town events,” Welch said. “She has jumped in with both feet, and her job has become more managerial than clerical. That is why we are making the change.”
