The Town’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department has two new members on its nationally accredited team.

Events Coordinator Brittany Washington came on board July 3. She had most recently served as recreation program supervisor for the Town of Winterville. Washington earned a master’s degree in recreation and park administration and a bachelor’s degree in recreation and park management from East Carolina University.

New Marketing Coordinator Megan Thornton joined the department on July 11. She was previously employed with the Town of Knightdale as a recreation program supervisor. Thornton has a master’s degree in public administration from UNC-Pembroke and a bachelor’s degree in communications/marketing from Appalachian State University. She previously worked with a Town of Garner services provider, PEG Media Partners, as a producer.

“Our team was very fortunate to attract the attention of Ms. Washington and Ms. Thornton,” Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Director Sonya Shaw said. “Both professionals bring a wealth of education and expertise to the department that will contribute to the provision of excellent activities, performances and special events for our residents. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the PRCR team, and we look forward to the positive attitudes, work ethic and community-mindedness these women bring to the department.”
