As you probably guessed, they are both the same news.
Our outstanding, much admired Deputy Manager Larry Woodward has accepted a new position. He will become the Deputy Project Leader at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.
As Refuge Manager Andrew Gude said, "It is a good career move for Larry and we are pleased for him. We have had a cohesive and successful team here for ten years. That is more than most workplaces ever get to say. We will miss him. It has been a very good run and we are all grateful for those ten years." (Then of course, being Andrew, he added "Don't tell Larry I said all those nice things, okay?")
Too bad. I had to share them with all of us who know how lucky we are to have had him, and the stellar team for all this time!
Here is what Refuge Manager Michael Lusk at Okefenokee NWR had to say:
We wish you all the best, Larry.
