In reflec­tion of the past few sea­sons at the City of Mar­i­on Splash House, one staff mem­ber at the park is being rec­og­nized for hard work, ded­i­ca­tion, and proven leadership.

Patri­cia Park­er was first hired in May of 2016 as an entry-lev­el Sup­port Crew Mem­ber. After prov­ing a good work eth­ic and lead­er­ship skills, she was pro­mot­ed to Sup­port Crew Man­ag­er in May of 2018 — a role she still serves, hav­ing com­plet­ed 3 sea­sons in man­age­ment since the Splash House did not open in 2020.

Splash House Direc­tor Andy Davis explained that through Parker’s years of employ­ment, she has been inte­gral to Splash House func­tion­ing and excels in her job through moti­vat­ing oth­ers and work­ing well with her staff.

Davis empha­sized, She super­vis­es a staff of 30 – 35 mem­bers — all teenagers — who work con­ces­sions, clean, and oper­ate the front desk. Patri­cia is incred­i­bly patient and under­stand­ing, and has done an excel­lent job in work­ing with a small­er crew this year.”

Park­er said that she grew to real­ly enjoy her role at the Splash House. I orig­i­nal­ly applied in order to be clos­er to my chil­dren who were work­ing there at the time. I instant­ly fell in love with the park’s fam­i­ly-friend­ly atmos­phere. I have since formed friend­ships with the staff as well as the guests, and get to enjoy the beau­ti­ful sum­mer weath­er in addi­tion to the friend­ly faces of our community.”
