Park Forest Recreation & Parks Department is pleased to announce the promotion of Adina McCollough to Recreation Supervisor.
Adina McCollough began her service with the Village of Park Forest as Kidz Zone Coordinator for the Park Forest Public Library in 2012. As that program grew, Teen Zone was born, a partnership with Recreation & Parks Department and the Park Forest Public Library leading to Adina joining the Recreation & Parks Department in 2015 as the Teen Services Coordinator.
Through her dedication and passion for working with youth, Adina has worked cooperatively with the Park Forest Police Department in the P.A.A.C. program as well as working with the Youth Commission for 4 years. We are excited to welcome Adina in her new capacity as a Recreation Supervisor where she will expand her years of experience in trip planning, youth programming and community involvement full-time with the Recreation & Parks Department.
