The City of Lake Wales congratulates Stephanie Edwards, Support Services and Recreation Manager, for her achievement in becoming a Certified Parks and Recreation Professional (CPRP) by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).

“I am proud of what Stephanie has done to improve the quality of life within the community,” City Manager James Slaton said.

Stephanie serves the City by managing recreational activities in City facilities for sports leagues and volunteer sports programs.  “One big success, was the new middle school girls’ volleyball program. We had 62 girls participate,” Stephanie said.

Stephanie also develops exciting recreational programs for residents and visitors, such as Music in the Park and Lake Night Cinema. She possesses a strong passion to keep residents connected to the benefits and services provided by Parks and Recreation. Stephanie recently partnered with the local YMCA, providing City residents free access to the pool during specific timeframes.

Stephanie has served the City since 2017. In addition to managing Parks and Recreation, she manages the operations of the City’s facilities, fleet, and purchasing departments.

The Certified Parks and Recreation Professional certification is the national standard for all parks and recreation professionals.
