Friends of ONP elect officers

With annual elections recently completed, two new board members and a new slate of officers have assumed leadership responsibility for the Friends of Olympic National Park.
David Morris, former Olympic National Park superintendent, was elected to serve as president of the board of directors, and former park volunteer coordinator Ray Lovely has been elected vice president.
Longstanding board members Karen Jensen and Dan Peacock are continuing in their roles as secretary and treasurer, respectively. Two newly elected board members, Dave Colthorp and Paul Gleeson, join longtime members Rod Farlee and Jim Hoare on the board of directors. Colthorp, a lifelong Port Angeles resident, retired in 2010 as buildings and campgrounds supervisor following a 33-year career at Olympic National Park.
Gleeson, who first came to the Olympic Peninsula in the 1960s as a student working on the Ozette archeological site, retired from the position of chief of cultural resources at Olympic National Park in 2011 after a 26-year National Park Service career.
