Congratulations to Matt Martinez, KRPA member and Assistant Recreation Supervisor at Wichita Park and Recreation, for receiving the 2018 John C. Potts Leadership Development Scholarship. The highly-competitive "Pottsie" scholarship is awarded to one young professional who has demonstrated leadership and management potential within their organization.
The AIPE/American Academy Foundation chooses the winner of the "Pottsie" scholarship which provides scholarship funds for the individual to attend NRPA's Directors School. (Information about NRPA's Directors School is available at https://www.nrpa.org/directors/.) This scholarship honors former American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration's Executive Director John Potts and is made possible through the generous donations of Academy members and friends. Martinez will be recognized at the 2018 AAPRA annual meeting.
Congratulations, Matt! We are very proud of you!
