LINCOLNVILLE, Me. — Tanglewood 4-H Camp and Learning Center, a program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, recently hired Corey Pickett as its new marketing manager.
Pickett, who joined the staff on August 21, is a member of AmeriCorps’ Communities for Children and Youth Program, a state-wide effort to fight poverty among youth. One of Pickett’s tasks will be to continue the success of the camp’s scholarship funds. This marks Tanglewood’s 25th year of offering affordable environmental education to Maine’s young people.
Pickett earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism at West Virginia University and has a professional background in both news reporting and public relations. His duties include writing press releases, publishing in-house correspondence, implementing marketing plans, and establishing connections all across the state.
“I am really proud to be a part of a program that has so much tradition and impact throughout the state,” Pickett said. “We want every family in Maine to have the opportunity to come and take advantage of what this great camp has to offer.”
Pickett will work closely with Development Officer Sarah Shepherd and the new Executive Director Brian Robinson to promote the camp’s diverse selection of programs.
“Corey’s diverse skills and experience will directly benefit Maine’s youth and families as we further expand opportunities at our Tanglewood and Blueberry Cove campuses,” Robinson said.
