The Rec Center is pleased to announce that we've hired an Executive
Director. As most of you know, Beth Dyer our former
Administrative Director - has been studying for a Masters in Library
Science, and has been looking for a fulltime mainland job in that
field; she recently started at University of New England, and
we wish her well in this pursuit! And, Sarah McKinnon, our
current Recreation Director, is leaving this spring to pursue
a MSW in counseling; we wish her well as she moves into this important
field! The Board, after listening to suggestions from Beth
and Sarah and others, decided last fall to combine these two Rec
positions into a full time Executive Director position.
We advertised last fall on the island and on the mainland; our goal was to find the most qualified candidates in order to best position the Rec for growth into the future. We had four applicants, all of whom could do good work for the Rec and for Chebeague. One candidate, however, had more of the qualifications, experience, and skills that are specifically related to the current and future work of the Rec. Tracy Quadro of North Yarmouth will start work at the Rec on March 31. She will have a nice training overlap with Sarah for the month of April, and Beth has offered to spend some time with her as well.
Please stop by the Rec after March 31 and say hi to Tracy; she'll be interested in your thoughts and suggestions for the Rec. And, please remember to thank Sarah and Beth for all that they have given to CRC!
