“I’m really excited to be back at the Globe, and I’m excited to be able to focus on the community,” said Lucin. “Worthington is so unusual because its community is so diverse – new immigrants, old farming families, young children and the elderly, progressive and traditional people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.”
