LTI - class of 2018!

Meet our 2018 LTI committee...
Featured in October: Terry Caldwell
Terry is currently the Director of Aquatics with the Town of Christiansburg, having been in the recreation field for 32 years.  She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse with a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Administration.  Connecting with people and forming bond within our community  is the favorite part of her job.  One challenge, though, in the aquatic industry is convincing folks how great the water is for your body, especially in a somewhat rural community.  
Terry is a graduate of the LTI class of 2014! The energy that came from the top of the mountain those two days was all it took for her to immediately know serving on the committee was her next challenge, where she has been ever since.  Attending LTI opened her mind to possibilities and broadened her ideas for future leadership and growth.  Terry is inspired by the passion that surrounds her at every LTI meeting that all leads up to final finale on top of Wintergreen!  Attending LTI rejuvenated her soul.  In Terry's opinion, this type of training reminds us why we are recreation professionals to begin with.    

To quote Terry, "You will not be disappointed...let us transform your inner self into the recreation professional you always hoped to be!"
