McPHERSON, Kan. — McPherson Main Street’s Board of Directors is excited to announce the hiring of its next Director, Johni Doughman.

Marc Seller, the board treasurer, said this of Johni: “She has a partnership mentality that I fully expect her to apply with our organization to increase value for our member businesses.

Johni’s first day will be Monday, July 8, and she is ready to hit the ground running: “I’m excited to work with members and established leadership to make a real impact in McPherson through the support of businesses and organizations,” said Doughman.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have her lead this organization,” said Coffey. “She will add value to our member businesses and organizations and the City of McPherson in general.”

In her spare time, Johni enjoys time with family as well as thrifting, crafting, cooking, and camping. She and her husband Brad have raised their two children, Brayden and Braylee, in Canton, KS.
