Dorothy Dickerson

Dorothy assumed responsibility for the bookstore in 1999, and has faithfully maintained the bookstore because (in her words) "Albion needs a bookstore".  She has been an Albion supporter and builder for most of her adult life, and still lives in Albion, near the river.

Staci Stuart

A voracious reader, Staci grew up in nearby Jackson, Michigan.  She relocated to Charlotte, NC, after graduating from Western Michigan University, where she improved and flipped houses as a general contractor.  She has grown to love Albion after meeting Jim and so many wonderful people here in town, and hopes to see our downtown become more beautiful and our city a more vibrant place to call "home".  Staci is sometimes called the "chief volunteer" of Albion, since she participates in so many wonderful volunteer opportunites.   Staci is on the board of the Albion Community Gardens.

Jim Stuart

After growing up in Jackson, Michigan, Jim spent most of his life in the greater Jackson area.   Returning to Michigan in 2011, Jim found the town of Albion to be both pleasant and affordable, and determined that if he was going to live here, he was going to work hard to "be a townie".  Jim works with the local youth soccer board and is very active in the music scene in Albion and the central Michigan area.
