Rick Desharnais ’01 is the assistant director of Parks and Recreation in Meredith, NH. “I have been and advocate for Plymouth State College and Plymouth State University since I was first associated with the school in 1996 as in incoming freshman. While I spend a great deal of time recruiting, training, and managing volunteers, very few things are more rewarding than volunteering my time to help make a difference.”
Rick joined the Meredith Parks and Recreation Department in 2003 and was involved with bringing the 20,000 square foot Community Center to his hometown, which he now is responsible for scheduling. He also serves as the president of New Hampshire Hershey Track and Field Youth Program and each year volunteers with the long standing Mae C. Hart Memorial Thanksgiving Dinner. Rick’s term on the Board of Directors ends in 2013.
