AMY SAD, the Madison Community Center's new director, poses outside the building on Tuesday. Sad, formerly the assistant director, officially started as the director Monday after the previous director, Gene Wockenfuss, left the position about 2 months ago.

New Madison Community Center Director Amy Sad was surprised when she hosted a new director meet-and-greet last Friday. The people she talked with didn’t just want to know her plans for the Community Center –they wanted to get to know her on a personal level.

Sad, the former assistant director, officially stepped into the director position Monday. She and her family moved from the west coast a year and a half ago, searching for a “more family-friendly area.” They traveled across South Dakota, eventually touring a house for sale in Madison.
