Oil, gas are on our minds but not for long

Ten years ago, everyone was fretting about a jobless recovery. Today, we might be about to find out if there is such a thing as a full-employment recession. Job figures show Hagerstown employment is close to being back to where it was prior to the pandemic, and hiring on the state level remains strong as well. Jobs are plentiful nationwide, and employers are desperate for help — to the point that one shop owner in Arizona said he’s fired an employee three different times, and each time had to go back hat in hand begging him to return.

Deb Young Huber ’77

Tell us about your Dickinson experience. I met my best friend, my husband Mike Huber ’77, during the first evening of Dickinson’s freshman orientation in late August 1973. Our freshman halls were paired up for a social in KW Round Room. My whole hall attended the function as a group. Mike’s roommate didn’t attend, and that was the best luck I ever had, because Mike started talking to me! We found that we had much in common … playing sports, big close-knit families, we loved to laugh and tell stories, we didn’t know anyone at the college yet, and we weren’t sure what we would major in. Our experience together at Dickinson was one of maturation as young adults, both socially and academically. We studied hard, had part-time jobs, played on intramural and intercollegiate sports teams, engaged in Greek life and made many lifelong friends. It was a truly remarkable four years!
