Phil Lozano, Andra Foreman, and Adam Richter attended the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS) Annual Conference in El Paso last week. Throughout the week, our staff members attended educational sessions on the latest trends in Parks and Recreation and earned CEU’s for their CPRP certifications. Between sessions, they did some sightseeing in El Paso which lead them to the Franklin Mountains State Park. We’re thrilled to report that they survived the treacherous winds and chilly weather during their hike, even stopping to take a quick selfie! They have returned to Highland Village energized and ready to jump back in!
