Stucky to take post with parish, St. Edmond
Growth Alliance staffer moves to new role
Kate Stucky, the office manager of the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance, has been named the new director of operations and finance for Holy Trinity Parish and St. Edmond Catholic School.
She will begin her new responsibilities there on May 10.
”I fully believe in the vision and missions of both St. Edmond Catholic School and Holy Trinity Parish, and I’m very much looking forward to striving to help achieve those,” Stucky said.
”I am already an active member in both the school and the church — it seemed like a natural fit,” she added. ”It is also a welcomed bonus to be on the same campus as my children”
Stucky said in her new role she will continue to strengthen the financial position of the school and church. She also wants to create additional partnerships between the school, parish and community.
She will remain on the Finance Committee of the Growth Alliance. She is also the president of Main Street Fort Dodge, treasurer of the local RAGBRAI committee and a member of the Public Art Commission and Fort Dodge Young Professionals.
Stucky joined the staff of the Growth Alliance in 2013.
”We certainly hate to see her leave,” said Dennis Plautz, the chief executive officer of the Growth Alliance.
”She has had a lot to do with the development and the organization of the Growth Alliance,” he added. ”She’s been very good at taking charge, being independent and generating ideas for our organization.”
Plautz credited Stucky with being instrumental in creating efficiencies in procedures and in financial matters. He said she also had a big role in developing the alliance’s social media platforms.
Stucky, a native of Kentucky, has a bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky.. She and her husband, Leo, have three children.
