The Maine Lakes Resource Center (MLRC), home of several local environmental groups, announces the appointment of Brenda Fekete as Interim Executive Director/Lake Science Manager. Ms. Fekete has served as Lake Science Manager for the last two years, working with Colby College faculty and student interns on collecting data from all of the lakes in the Belgrade Lakes Watershed and analyzing the data at the Colby College facilities and in the Colby wet lab at the MLRC. She will continue as Lake Science Manager and Interim Executive Director with the help of Logan Parker, whose responsibilities have expanded to Director of Programming/Assistant Lake Science Manager.
The Maine Lakes Resource center is organizing and adjusting staffing to meet anticipated needs and challenges of the future. The organization has retained a development consultant and plans to hire a permanent executive director. Kathi Wall, former administrator of the MLRC, has elected to step down her level of involvement. She developed parallel programming around the intersections of science and the arts at the MLRC Annex. The Annex, which was an extension of the MLRC located in a separate building adjacent to the Belgrade Lakes Post Office, will now be operated separately by Kathi Wall as a creative center.
