Three Ohio parks and recreation professionals have been elected to the Board of Directors of the Ohio Parks and Recreation Association (OPRA) in voting by members which concluded earlier this month.
Re-elected to a three year term on the OPRA Board is Kristin Otley, Director of Bowling Green Parks and Recreation. Newly elected to the board are Kim Farrell, Parks and Recreation Superintendent with the City of Beavercreek and Jessica Fox-Gift, Manager of Parks and Recreation, Research and Planning with the City of Cleveland.
“This association and the parks and recreation profession in Ohio have benefited greatly from strong leadership within the profession. We are fortunate as an association to have so many outstanding leaders who are willing to step up and give back through their work with OPRA,” said Woody Woodward, OPRA Executive Director. “Kristin, Kim and Jess have been active in OPRA and have contributed greatly to our successes. We are excited to have them on the Board of Directors.”
Established in 1934, OPRA is a statewide non-profit organization representing more than 2,000 parks and recreation professionals and citizen board members from around the state of Ohio.
Board members will be sworn in and begin their terms at the June 25, 2020 Board meeting.
