The Town of Killington announced June 18 the appointment of
Lyndsay Gang as the new Director of Recreation. Lyndsay was
selected from a pool of applicants who applied over the last few
months. Killington Town Manager Seth Webb explains.
"Lyndsay was our first choice. She is well prepared and
qualified for the position. In addition to her strong
background, she has demonstrated her abilities over the last year
making significant contributions to the Office of Economic
Development and Tourism Office and serving as the Interim
Recreation Director since December."
Gang graduated from the University of Vermont with a B.A. in
Environmental Studies and a minor in Recreation Management and also
earned a Masters in Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law
School. In addition to her strong academic background, she's
had extensive experience with events, recreation programs, and the
Killington community. She's worked as an Events Planner and
Hospitality Director during her time in Burlington, and taught
snowboarding at Killington Resort.
Beginning in 2011, she worked as a summer intern in the Office of
Economic Development and Tourism, planning events and summer
programs in the Town of Killington. During the Tropical Storm
Irene response, she proved to be a very valuable contributor,
supporting the dissemination of public information. In December of
2011, Lyndsay was appointed Interim Director of Recreation.
"Lyndsay has been very effective over the last five months,
increasing the visibility of Recreation programs online and in the
community, and expanding recreational options by extending Splash
Theater and recruiting new programs like Circus For All and VT
Youth Adventures," said Betsey Bianchi, Recreation Commission
chairwoman. "In addition, Lyndsay is helping to increase
participation in Killington's popular summer camps-- Camp Loads of
Fun and Rek & Trek Adventure Camp," Bianchi continued.
