Killington names new director of recreation

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.
