GOSHEN — Town Clerk Kristen Estelle recently qualified for the Massachusetts Town Clerks’ Association’s prestigious certified Massachusetts municipal clerk designation and will receive her commemorative pin and certificate at the association’s spring conference in Plymouth, June 8.

The designation is achieved by attending association-sponsored educational courses and passing a 250-question aptitude test measuring the municipal clerk’s knowledge of Massachusetts General Laws in categories such as elections and election procedures, vital records, campaign & political finance, ethics and public records. The designation is held by 120 of the commonwealth’s 301 active town clerks.

Estelle has served as Goshen’s elected town clerk for 4½ years. Since 2013 she has also worked as the Goshen Council on Aging newsletter editor. She served on the Hampshire Regional School District Committee from 2011 to 2017 and the Goshen Historical Society from 2013 to 2017. She has been a member of the New Hingham PTO since 2017.

She earned a bachelor of arts degree in English and communications from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.
