Melissa Earl has been Rawlins resident for four years. Originally from Valley City, No. Dak., Earl and her husband moved to Rawlins after they “decided to try something different.” Earl began work at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts two and a half years ago as a part-time employee. She eventually progressed to store manager after the prior manager retired. Earl jumped at the chance as she felt ready for the responsibility. She said of Rawlins, “It’s not the friendliest town, but there’s some good people here.” If you see your neighbor Melissa Earl, say hi!
