Lindsay Smith has joined the staff of Summit Metro Parks as its new marketing and communications specialist.
Smith, who has a bachelor's degree in business economics from Ohio University, will assist the park district with its marketing and branding efforts including events, publications, social media and more. The Hudson resident was hired July 21. She comes to Summit Metro Parks after four years with Leadership Akron, where she managed marketing, communications and special projects.
A user of the Jogging Trail in Akron's Sand Run Metro Park - the district's busiest park, with more than 2 million visits per year - Smith has been impressed with the efficiency, organization and passion of her new co-workers.
"It's exciting to be a part of this," she said.
