Bennett To Leave Teton Valley Foundation

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Teton Valley Foundation has announced that Executive Director Lauren Bennett will be resigning from her position at the end of the Kotler Ice Arena season after serving two years at the helm. Bennett spearheaded the fundraising and construction of the 494-square-foot Warming Hut and Pro Shop Area at the Kotler Ice Arena. The project received support from capital campaign donors and grant awards, along with a summer of hard work from the team at Holland Construction, adding two new bathrooms for the rink’s growing user base, much-improved flow to use and staff space, and more storage for skates. In addition to the Warming Hut, Bennett also began the plastic waste reduction initiative at Music on Main. The position has been posted online and the Teton Valley Foundation board is  beginning their search for a successor.
