Tay­lor Gille­spie was hired on May 6th, 2021 as an Admin­is­tra­tive Assis­tant and Event Coor­di­na­tor for the City of Mar­i­on Parks & Recre­ation Department.

Since her start date, she has jumped in to cre­ate and orga­nize numer­ous suc­cess­ful events through the Parks Dept. includ­ing two Com­mu­ni­ty Cel­e­bra­tion Cook­outs for New Play­grounds, two Disc Golf Course Cleanups, and a Corn­hole Tour­na­ment. She is cur­rent­ly orga­niz­ing a Fall Fes­ti­val planned for Octo­ber 23rd in Mat­ter Park, and has raised thou­sands through spon­sor­ships to cov­er all of her costs for each event. She has most recent­ly joined the Dis­cov­er Mar­i­on Down­town plan­ning team for the City of Mar­i­on to assist with coor­di­nat­ing month­ly down­town events with the Com­mu­ni­ty Devel­op­ment and Plan­ning Depts.

Parks & Recre­ation Dept. Super­in­ten­dent, James Loftis, expressed, Since Tay­lor has come on board with the Parks Dept., she has been an absolute joy to work with and always has a smile. She hit the ground run­ning with sched­ul­ing events and learn­ing City pro­ce­dures. We’ve gone a few years with­out much on the event sched­ule, and hold­ing events are cru­cial to a healthy Parks sys­tem. She has been instru­men­tal in fundrais­ing for these events with great com­mu­ni­ty response. I am excit­ed to see what the com­ing year holds.”

Parks Office Man­ag­er, Rose Cade­na, stat­ed, Tay­lor has been a plea­sure to work with and a great addi­tion to our Parks staff. She has cre­at­ed sev­er­al suc­cess­ful events in the short time she has been with the Parks Dept. She has been a huge help in the Parks Dept. office, and I look for­ward to all the things she brings/​adds to our team.”
