Hayes Arboretum Names New Outreach & Education Coordinator
In an effort to increase community access and awareness, Hayes Arboretum has named Kate Glen as Outreach & Education Coordinator. This position is a direct positive result of the Arboretum’s participation in the Wayne County Foundation 2018 Challenge Match. Hayes Arboretum would like to offer many thanks to the Wayne County Foundation Challenge Match for benefits such as this which it offers our community.
Glen joins Arboretum staff after completing her Masters of Arts in Arts Administration at Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs. An educator and entrepreneur, Glen has experience in secondary and adult education and is co-owner of The Two Sisters: Books & More in the Depot District. Her novel, The Misadventures of Martin Hathaway, has recently been adapted for stage by Earlham College Department of Theatre.
Executive Director Stephen Hayes, Jr., noted, “We are thrilled to have Kate as part of the Hayes Arboretum staff. Her educational background, work experience, skills and interests make her a great fit for her role at the Arboretum. Kate has extensive experience and involvement with promoting education both in the classroom and outdoors. I intend to provide her with great opportunities to interact with the community and help extend the mission beyond the Arboretum’s borders. It is often commented that the Arboretum is a hidden gem in our community. With Kate’s help, the Arboretum will be more of gem and less hidden. Please stop by the Arboretum table at the next community event you attend and say hi to Kate.”
