STURBRIDGE — On Tuesday, Jan. 17, the Board of Selectmen unanimously ratified the appointment of Michael Hickey, of Cherry Valley, to the position of Veterans Services director.

Hickey, an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Air Force, was employed throughout his career in the business sector, serving in such capacities as director, vice president, and operations manager. Following his retirement, he began working as the part-time veterans services officer in Leicester, where he has worked since 2009.

"Tim is an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Air Force and has direct experience with Chapter 115 veterans benefits through his work as Leicester's part-time veterans services officer. He comes highly recommended by that community's town administrator," said Sturbridge Town Administrator Shaun Suhoski. "Tim also brings a wealth of private sector business experience, and I believe the town's veterans will be well-served."
