David Kesler receives award from Rhodes
Longtime, recently retired, and much missed Park Friends board member David Kesler just received the Jameson M. Jones Award for Outstanding Faculty Service. David is a biology professor at Rhodes who has been our longtime forestry expert on the board and who, in a series of student projects, eradicated kudzu in the Old Forest. He has cheerfully led clean-ups and privet pulls and been a calm and steady presence in board meetings. This award, focused on his community service (Park Friends is just one branch of his giving back to the community) is much deserved. Thank you for all your hard work, David!
