GRP Welcomes New Administrative Staff

By Sandy Schenck

Please join us in welcoming Case Kennedy, our new Summer Camp Director and Molly Wafle, our new Assistant Summer Camp Director and Administrative Assistant, to Green River Preserve. Their experiences and talents bring an expertise to GRP that we are very excited to have in our administrative staff.

Case began her GRP career this past summer as a mentor and quickly found her place in our camp home. Her love of the outdoors coupled with her strengths in team management, motivation, and maturity quickly earned her a leadership role in the summer of 2011.

Case graduated from Colorado State University with a major in natural resources and has spent the last ten years introducing children and adults to the great outdoors. As manager of a ski resort, Case supervised staff recruitment and human resources, marketing, business planning, and cohesive team collaboration.

Her background and experience is well-rounded and covers all the departments needed to be a Summer Camp Director. Through her experiences with young people, her goal for Green River Preserve is to maintain a fantastic camp from the ground up. She strongly feels that it is extremely important to know all of the campers and what makes each of them unique. She sincerely hopes that all GRP campers will leave camp with a love of nature, a sense of community and safe outdoor skills. Please join us in welcoming Case and her large brown dog, Moose.

We are thrilled to welcome back Molly Wafle to Green River Preserve. Molly worked at GRP in 2004 as a mentor in our fall SEE (School of Environmental Education) program following her graduation from Sewanee, The University of theSouth. With a major in natural resources and a focus on geology and forestry, Molly finds herself right at home at the preserve.  We are happy to welcome Molly and her sweet dog, Frances to GRP.

A native of Virginia, Molly is an excellent horseback rider, gardener, and cook. Molly has many years of camp experience as both a camper and a staff member. Some of these roles included running a camp horseback riding program and serving as a camp registrar and office manager. We hope you will join us in welcoming her and her sweet dog, Frances, to the GRP family.
