Community Recreation & Education Commission (C.R.E.C.) Opening

August 20, 2019 12:00 AM

The Lakewood Board of Education is looking to fill the open seat on the Community Recreation & Education Commission (C.R.E.C.) due to the recent resignation of Mrs. Barb McQuilken.

Mrs. McQuilken served on several commissions such as the softball commission, adult athletic commission before being appointed to the C.R.E.C.  She was in invaluable supporter of the Department, the Lakewood City School District and the community at large.  Her steady leadership, unique perspective on various topics and deep dedication will be greatly missed.  After serving with us for over 30 years, it truly is the end of an era and we will look to honor Mrs. McQuilken at the Board of Education meeting on Monday, September 16, 7:00pm in the Roosevlet Cafe.  

The Community Recreation and Education Commission is an advisory commission that is appointed by the Lakewood Board of Education.  With the help of two standing sub commissions, the Youth Athletic Commission, and the Adult Athletic Commission, it is responsible for providing input and oversight to the Lakewood Community Recreation and Education Department. 

The ideal candidate will have expertise, or experience in the areas of recreation, education, program development/participation and community outreach.  Monthly meetings, subcommittee work, as well as participation in community events, are among the time requirements.

Individuals who are interested in promoting the mission of the Community Recreation and Education Commission with passion and pride should submit a letter of interest and a statement of qualifications to Ms. Leslie Favre Krogman, Coordinator of Community Recreation & Education/Operations by September 13.

The Community Recreation and Education Commission will evaluate all applicants and make a formal recommendation to the Board of Education by October 1.
