SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (Monday, January 27, 2020) - The Town of Summerville has named Amy Evans as the new Parks and Recreation Manager. Town Council held a special called council meeting Thursday, January 23, 2020, where they voted unanimously on the Town Administrator’s recommendation to appoint Evans. She’ll start her new duties on Monday, February 10.

Evans comes to the Town from Charleston County Government where she served as the Operations Manager of Wannamaker County Park. She was responsible for hiring, training, and supervising park staff while coordinating special events, managing the park’s budget, and served as a first responder in emergency situations.

“I’m impressed with Ms. Evans’s experience, enthusiasm, and creative ideas for future projects,” Colin Martin, Summerville Town Administrator, said. “Her leadership skills compliment the needs required to be successful in this position. She has a clear vision of Summerville’s potential and understands the challenges of serving our community’s needs for passive and active recreation.”

“I’m passionate about the field of Parks and Recreation,” Evans said. “I recognize the potential within the Town of Summerville and I’m excited to become part of such a great organization.”

Evans has met the requirements of the standards set forth by the National Recreation and Park Association as a certified park and recreation professional. She currently serves as Treasurer for the South Carolina Recreation and Park Association (SCRPA). She plans to graduate as a Master Naturalist later this year.
