Hempfield names recreation director
Hempfield has hired a new recreation director.
Jason Winters, 29, of North Huntingdon, will start July 9, according to Supervisor Doug Weimer, chairman of the board.
Winters replaces Dean Minerva, who resigned abruptly earlier this year after being accused of stealing $22,000 in department funds. Minerva was placed in a Westmoreland County diversionary program for nonviolent offenders, known as Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, after repaying the money to the township. ARD allows a person to serve a period of good behavior and have his record cleared as long as he is not accused of any other crimes.
Winters was coordinator of Campus Life at St. Vincent College since 2007. Before that, he was coordinator of Residence Life at the school from 2006 to 2007.
He is a graduate of the Unity college who earned a master's degree in education from Geneva College.
He was selected this year for the St. Vincent College Administrator Award.
