The City is pleased to announced that Sean Johnson, Director of Parks and Recreation is one of 12 industry professionals recently elected into the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration.
"The Class of 2020 is a great addition to the Academy," 2020 Academy President Diane Hoover said. "It is one of most diverse classes the Academy has ever inducted with professionals and educators from eight different states – all of which have superior career experience and a dedication to improving the quality of life through the provision of high-quality parks and recreation opportunities."
The Academy is a group of distinguished practitioners and educators who are leaders in the field of parks and recreation. They must have either served for at least 15 years in a high level of administration in a park and recreation agency, as a recognized educator in parks and recreation administration, or they must manage a Parks and Recreation Department for an agency with a population of more than 500,000. They also must have demonstrated outstanding ability in administration, management or education in the profession, displayed broad interest with a direct service benefit to the advancement of public parks and recreation, or assumed leadership with a keen desire to contribute to the advancement of the field. The Academy is limited to 125 active members.
Established in 1980, the Academy was formed to advance knowledge related to the administration of recreation and parks, to support and encourage scholarly efforts by both practitioners and educators to enhance the practice of park and recreation administration, to promote broader public understanding of the importance of parks and recreation to the public good, and to conduct research, publish scholarly papers and/or sponsor seminars related to the advancement of park and recreation administration.
