Parks’ Picks

Gratitude is on everyone’s mind right now. For this week’s Parks’ Picks, we asked Montgomery Parks employees what they are most grateful for.

Administrative Specialist II Sandra Samuel: “I’m grateful for my family, my health, and my job.”

Deputy Director of Operations John Nissel: “My new grandson.”

Senior Natural Resources Specialist Corinne Stephens: I am so thankful and proud of, the 754 certified Weed Warriors. They stuck with us through COVID and continued to get in our parks to conquer nonnative, invasive plants. We can’t do this important work without these vital volunteers!”

Senior Employee Labor Relations Specialist Kevin Thomas: “I’m glad I work with people who understand the importance of being on a team.”

Recreation Specialist Jordan Crumback: “This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for my little brother being stationed closer to home at Fort Meade, my amazing and supportive boyfriend who is always there for me, and finally becoming a full-time employee with Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC).”
