Hubbard named event center director
De Smet native Kristy (Hansen) Hubbard began a new position March 16 as director for the De Smet Events and Wellness Center.
Hubbard is a 1985 graduate of De Smet High School and attended Northern State University in Aberdeen.
She and her husband, Dan, have four grown children, Jesse, Abby, Haley and Kallie.
“No grandkids yet, but we have a lot of ‘grandpets,’” she said.
Along with scheduling and overseeing events at the new center, Hubbard is in charge of the city swimming pool and the summer baseball program. “Hopefully, we will eventually add more summer programs,” she said.
The center is expected to open by the first week in June. Hubbard said they already have events scheduled for the first three weekends in June and the first two weekends in July.
