Town clerk Beth Hamrick retiring after 32 years

November 30 will mark the end of Beth Hamrick’s 32-year career with the Town of Mint Hill. Hired in 1980 as a receptionist, Hamrick’s role has changed over the years. She has served as the secretary to the town administrator, the Planning Board coordinator, secretary to the Board of Adjustment, and the deputy clerk. In 1985 she became the town clerk, the position from which she is retiring.

Throughout the years, Hamrick has seen Mint Hill grow, tripling in population. She has served with numerous commissioners and four mayors. She has served in the town’s last three town hall locations: the McEwen Shopping Center, the building on Matthews-Mint Hill Road, and the newest building on Mint Hill Village Lane. Hamrick took classes for various certifications, including the certificate of municipal clerk and master municipal clerk.
