Keene, NH – The Hannah Grimes Center announced that Jillian Garcia, a 2010 graduate of the University of New Hampshire, has been named Program Coordinator. Garcia is responsible for managing all aspects of Hannah Grimes’ numerous workshops, seminars and educational programs in support of the development of entrepreneurs and community builders throughout the Monadnock region.
