The NC Recreation & Park Association (NCRPA) has selected Recreation Program Superintendent Monica Lileton to represent the Town of Wake Forest as a state ambassador.

Founded in 1944, the NCRPA is North Carolina’s premier nonprofit education and advocacy organization, dedicated to the advancement of the park, recreation and leisure professions in our state. NCRPA empowers park and recreation professionals and citizen board members through educational opportunities that enhance their ability to change lives and impact communities for the citizens of North Carolina.

NCRPA ambassadors work to share info about upcoming NCRPA events, programs and initiatives with their coworkers and staff. The Ambassador program seeks to recruit one-two members from each department with an agency membership to act as local liaisons.

Ambassadors utilize a variety of tools and resources to help the association better engage members. They also disseminate information, share event dates, encourage the participation of members and recruit volunteers to participate in various events and initiatives.

Ambassadors serve a two-year term, are invited to attend a free training/retreat and eligible to receive discounts to attend NCRPA's annual conference.

A native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Lileton has worked for Wake Forest since 2014. A 2005 graduate of Gardner-Webb University, she was the 2016 Jon Ray Town of Wake Forest Employee of the Year.
