Island Rec’s Board of Commissioners has chosen Maddie Ovenell as the new Director for Island Rec. She replaces Sally Kerr who resigned earlier this year.
The hiring committee received many applications from across the country and after conducting interviews the first week of August, the board unanimously agreed that Ovenell was the right person for the job.
Ovenell brings years of experience to the position as she has worked as a recreation specialist for the Oswego Parks and Recreation District, as program director at Camp Orkila, and as the San Juan County fairgrounds manager. Both Ovenell and the Island Rec staff are looking forward to working together to shape the future of the programs and parks on San Juan Island.
