Gladewater selects Main Street manager
Gladewater — The city of Gladewater selected its first Main Street manager on Monday, with an expected start date of June 2.

Corwin is leaving Muncie, Indiana, where she attended Ball State University.

Shipp said in February, when the City Council approved hiring a person for the position. “This is a good time to bring someone in ... who is specifically trained for this.”
