WAYNE COUNTY PARK DISTRICT AND FRIENDS OF THE WAYNE COUNTY PARK DISTRICT ARE PLEASED ACKNOWLEDGE THE WORK OF OUR VOLUNTEERS EACH YEAR!

2022 Volunteer of the Year

Sue Zann Johnson

Thank you to the Board for being chosen “Volunteer of the Year”. I have enjoyed the camaraderie of being a part of the Friends of the Park organization. I have been the group’s Treasurer for the last five years. The Barnes Preserve is truly a gem for the Community. I love the serenity that Barnes Preserve provides. The decision of providing outdoor activities to people of all abilities is truly a good one.

I grew up in Orrville and in Ocala, Florida. I moved back to Wooster in 2013 with my husband, Mark. We have been married 34 years and have a beautiful daughter, Jessica. She lives in North Carolina. I work at Huntington National Bank as a Teller and have found it to be rewarding career.
