White Accepts DCP Board of Commissioners Seat

Tina White has been a dedicated Darke County Parks volunteer and member of the Friends of Darke County Parks for over five years and beginning on January 1, 2017 will take a seat on the park board of commissioners.

White is a graduate of Greenville High School and works for Western Southern Life. Some of her volunteer activities for the park have included the Waffle Breakfast during the Maple Syrup Festival, managing the pie baking contest at Prairie Days, and carving stamps for Nature Day celebrations among many others. Her enthusiasm for nature, education, and fun is contagious.

White said she is, “excited and prepared to begin this new challenge with the Darke County Parks Board of Commissioners.” The board positions are on staggered 3 year terms, and members are appointed by Probate Judge Jason Aslinger. White will be taking over for L. Stephen Shaltry who served the board for 24 years before his retirement at the end of 2016.

The Darke County Parks staff and volunteers are excited about Tina joining the commissioner ranks and bringing with her enthusiasm and love for nature and the parks.
