The new Executive Director of the Savage River Watershed Association (SRWA), Kathy Bisko, will be introduced at the July 19 bi-monthly SRWA meeting to be held at 7 PM in the classroom of the Appalachian Laboratory in Frostburg, MD. The public is welcome to attend.
Over the past 15 plus years Bisko has worked with a diverse group of communities, organizations, and businesses to help implement local programs and projects. These range from a green building initiative in rural Montana to the construction of a residential subdivision on a reclaimed brownfield site in suburban Philadelphia. Most recently she has been working as program director for a non-profit organization in Somerset County, Pennsylvania to implement community improvement projects based on locally priorities and long-terms goals.
In her new position as Executive Director of SRWA, Kathy looks forward to dedicating her skills and experience to help preserve and enhance this extraordinary natural area. According to Bisko, “Although there are sure to be many challenges along the way, the organization has an impressive record of accomplishments to build on—and I am excited about the potential to do even more good work on behalf of SRWA in the future”.
