This week’s “Meet the Director Monday” is Jennifer Hawley. Jennifer works as Plant Manager for her family’s business Magnolia Metal Corporation. Jennifer has served on the Auburn Development Council for 7 years.
Jennifer was born and raised right here in Auburn, NE. She moved away for about 18 years but ultimately came back to Auburn because this was where she and her husband Aron wanted to raise their family. They absolutely love their small town life. Jennifer and Aron have four children; Lily, Bella, Hudson, and Amelia.
Jennifer wanted to be a part of the Auburn Development Council because she wanted to get involved in her community and to have an impact. Jennifer desires to see Auburn grow and wants to do her part in making Auburn a great place to raise her kids.
When asked what does being a member of the Auburn Development Council mean to you? Jennifer answered the following: “I’m invested in Auburn’s future, and I want to dedicate the time and effort to see that through.” While Jennifer enjoys many aspects of serving on the Auburn Development Council her favorite part is being able to plan or get things going for the town of Auburn. She has enjoyed being more involved in the community and that in turn has helped her involve her own family’s business Magnolia Metal Corporation in more town events.
When asked who she looks up to on the ADC Board, Jennifer answered Kim Beger. “She is dedicated and works tirelessly on behalf of the city of Auburn cares so much about Auburn. She cares about Auburn and puts in a great deal of time without asking for anything in return.”
Looking towards the future of the Auburn Development Council, Jennifer is excited to see “The transition and quality of life projects that will hopefully intertwine with all of the things that Auburn Development Council stands for.”
