Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Central States has named Heidi Huber as the organization’s human resources coordinator. She succeeds Melissa Waltner, who left MCC to pursue other opportunities after eight years with MCC Central States.
Huber will focus on traditional human resources tasks, including selection and placement of workers, employee/worker care. In addition, she’ll resource regional supervisors, help to recruit MCC service workers and relate to MCC alumni. Huber will work from the MCC office in North Newton.
Huber worked with Intermenno from 2000-2001 in Germany and then returned to Germany with MCC from 2006-2009. Huber and her husband Tim worked with Christliche Dienste in Bammental. She explains she, “Helped interview potential volunteers, wrote and translated interview reports and applications between German and English, coordinated and carried out seminars and orientations for volunteers, and, for a short period, helped administer the MCC International Volunteer Exchange Program in Western Europe.”
“I love MCC, so am excited to be working again with the organization, this time on the administrative side. It is an organization dear to me and I am so glad to have the opportunity to do something fulfilling on so many levels.”
Huber recently earned her Master’s in Human Resource Management from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.
Huber lives in Newton with her husband Tim, and their three children Gustav, Hazel and Astrid.
