Letha Ashworth has come on board as the new executive secretary for the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce.
She takes over the reins of Judy Larson who recently resigned.
Ashworth was born and raised in the Bay Area of California and after her graduation from high school she married Wayne Ashworth and moved to San Diego while he was in the U.S. Navy.
Her grandparents were raised in Conrad and her mother graduated from Conrad High School.
Over the years there were many holiday visits to see family in Conrad, but it wasn’t until a position became open at the Pondera Medical Center that her husband of 27 years was able to fit into, that they could come back to Conrad on a permanent basis.
“This is a great place to raise a family,” she says having two children, one in the eighth grade and the other in the sixth grade.
She still owns a “niche” travel agency in Houston, Texas and is in the process of moving it here.
Her agency mainly deals with moving around refinery mechanical crews
The CofC is located at 7 6th Ave. SW just across the street from the Pondera Village Shopping Center. Their phone number is 271-7791.
Stop by and say hi to the new executive secretary of the CofC.
