SUNBURY-AREA RESIDENT HONORED FOR YEARS OF SERVICE TO OHIO STATE PARKS
COLUMBUS, OH – Sunbury-area resident Ron Kus, business group manager for Ohio State Parks, has received the park system’s Leadership Award for 2007. The award recognizes Kus’ leadership qualities in the areas of customer service, community relations, employee development and attitude.
“Ron clearly stands out as a leader among his peers,” said Dan West, Ohio State Parks chief. “He has the respect and admiration of the administration, managers and support staff throughout the state.”
A 36-year veteran of Ohio’s state park system, Kus is frequently the source of advice and direction for co-workers and others. His institutional knowledge has been a valuable asset as the state park system navigates through numerous budget reductions and other complicated issues, West added.
Ohio's 74 state parks encompass nine resort lodges, more than 500 cottages and 56 family campgrounds with more than 9,000 campsites.
