Stacy Herbaugh ’93 ’09 chose Shenandoah to continue her athletic endeavors through its basketball and softball programs.
During her time at Shenandoah, Herbaugh recounts her fondest memories as meeting lifelong friends in the sports programs she was a part of. “I’m proud to still be a part of the lives of people I met long ago and wouldn’t trade our experiences for the world,” said Herbaugh.
Herbaugh is the director of the Frederick County Parks and Recreation Department. In her position, she works to manage, plan, organize and direct the various aspects of the County’s Parks and Recreation Department. Her duties include the development and direction of a professional recreation program and maintaining an adequate parks and recreation system.
Previously, Herbaugh worked in positions such as program supervisor in charge of special events, facilities coordinator, facilities manager, operations manager, superintendent of operations, all within the Frederick County Parks and Recreation Department.
Herbaugh recalls the opportunity to guide young people who are new to the workforce as one of her most rewarding career experiences. “It is also very rewarding to see the people in our programs; we have the opportunity to help people learn new skills, make lasting friendships, improve their health, as well as just have fun experiences with family and friends,” said Herbaugh.
Herbaugh attributes her Shenandoah education to providing her the tools she needed to succeed because of her excellent professors who took the time to make sure she was prepared for the workforce.
Herbaugh’s advice to current and future students is: “Grab all the opportunities you can to learn and be immersed in the field. Whether that is through an internship, volunteer opportunities, or even an extra class or two, never stop learning!”
