As Friday Harbor remains a special place to Woods, he’s excited about the opportunity to give back to the community through this position. “The numerous opportunities, strong community, and support as a kid growing up in Friday Harbor remains vital to who I am today. Being a part of Island Rec is something I’m extremely excited about. The opportunities Island Rec provides are tremendous, and I’m glad I can align with it professionally, just as I did in my experiences as a kid.”
