Sara (Sheller) Middleton may be new to the position of Eagle Grove Chamber of Commerce Director, but she is familiar with our town and Wright County.

Middleton is a 1993 graduate of Clarion-Goldfield. After moving away to attend college, earning a BA in 1999 and a masters in 2001, Middleton spent sometimes working in California before ultimately deciding back in Iowa is where she was meant to be. In 2017, she began working with the Wright County Economic Development Center under the leadership of Bryce Davis (who is now Eagle Grove’s City Administrator).

“I learned so much working in Economic Development,” said Middleton, referencing her involvement with large business, small business, collaboration, attracting businesses to the area, and more. “My passion is downtown revitalization and helping a community as a whole.”

Middleton plans on doing this by focusing on business, of course, but doing it in a creative way to form a healthier downtown business district which she believes will ultimately create success for the whole city.
