Roswell Rec & Parks Named Finalist

For the fifth consecutive year, the City of Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department has been named as a finalist for the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management by The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration, in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association.

“This is a tribute to the hard work and commitment to excellence by our staff, the continued support of the Recreation Commission, Mayor and City Council, and the commitment of the citizens of Roswell to the countless benefits that our department provides the community,” said Morgan Rodgers, director of the City’s Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department. “’Life Should Be Fun, Let Us Help’ is our motto—something we work hard every day to make a reality. Being in the elite ‘Gold Medal’ category confirms that we are having a positive impact on the lives of those who live in our great City of Roswell.”

Founded in 1965, the Gold Medal Awards program honors communities in the U.S. that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development and agency recognition. Agencies are judged on their ability to address the needs of those they serve through the collective energies of citizens, staff and elected officials.

Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department is a finalist in the Class III category (Population 75,001–150,000) and joins three other finalists in the class that will compete for Grand Plaque Award honors this year: City of Allen Parks and Recreation, Texas; Lawrence Parks and Recreation, Kansas; and St. George Leisure Services Department, Utah.

This year’s finalists will compete for Grand Plaque Award honors this summer, and the recipient will be announced at the 2015 NRPA Annual Conference in Las Vegas in September.
