This week we are shining our Staff Spotlight on Lake Tobesofkee’s Jack Thrush for his five years of dedicated service making sure the lake is a great place for families to visit.

Jack is the Crew Leader where he has daily supervision of maintenance workers and activities. He prepares and maintains the park’s exterior and interior facilities for use by cleaning, painting, and routine maintenance of reservable areas, recreational equipment and fields, shelters, and park grounds. Jack makes sure to keep the park looking great for everyone to enjoy.

“Jack is dedicated to being a crew leader and making sure the grounds are safe and secure for all the visitors of the park,” said Lake Tobesofkee Director Donald Bracewell. “He does what he loves doing and I am pleased that he’s a part of the Lake Tobesofkee family.”

Jack is also known for helping whenever and wherever he can. His team describes him as being proactive and always going the extra mile. Thank you for all that you for #TeamMaconBibb!
