EECOI Names New Coordinator

2fe7089After a 2-month search, Jenn Grimm was named as the new EECOI Coordinator yesterday. Jenn has been involved with the PWI for the past year as Coordinator of the Biodiversity COI, and will come onboard with the EECOI at the beginning of January. With 4 new Steering Committee members being voted in next month as well, this is an exciting time to be part of the community and Grimm is looking forward to the year ahead. “I’m excited to meet with the individual COI members,” she says. “It will be good for me to put names together with faces and to start to understand some of the new ways we can work more effectively, both inside this group and across the other parts of the PWI.”

After being in the system for the past year, Jenn has a good working knowledge of how the PWI is growing and the challenges that lie ahead. “It will feel good to get started,” she says. “Environmental education is something that I have spent a lot of time doing, being a part of. To get to do it in this kind of a group, in this way, is a real honor. I am looking forward to helping the COI move forward and being a part of this effort.”

(Full disclosure: As a member of the search committee that ultimately selected Ms. Grimm, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the other applicants for their interest in the COI and for taking the time to share their visions of what we can do together. It was an impressive field and, more than anything, the committee was struck by the amazing work that is being done throughout the watershed and elsewhere by these incredibly talented environmental educators.)
