MONROE – Lindsey Fowler, office manager for Union County Parks & Recreation, was recently named a Certified Park and Recreation Professional by the National Certification Board and the National Recreation and Park Association.
The certification is granted to people employed in the recreation, park resources and leisure services professions who meet the eligibility requirements, including completion of the national CPRP examination. The exam tests knowledge in general administration, programming and operations management.
“While this certification is not a requirement of her employment with Union County, she took it upon herself to study for this examination and receive the certification,” Director of Parks & Recreation Jim Chaffin said. “This certification will only help Lindsey and our department in the future.”
