BELLEFONTE — In Centre County, it was a Friday to remember.

Centre County officials said farewell to Centre County Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts, Debra C. Immel, who retired after working in the prothonotary’s office for more than four decades.

The county paid tribute to Immel with several proclamations by Centre County legislators, including Stephanie Borowicz, Glenn “GT” Thompson and Kerry Benninghoff.

Centre County Commissioner Mark Higgins stopped by to present Immel with a plaque marking her many years of service to the county.

Immel has spent nearly 44 years with the Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts Office, starting in 1976 as a department clerk. From there, she rose to deputy prothonotary and acting prothonotary. In 1999, she was elected to her first term as prothonotary and clerk of courts and subsequently was re-elected four more times, most recently in 2015. She announced prior to the 2016 primary that she would not be seeking another term as prothonotary.
