Evelyn’s Park Conservancy has announced a new interim park administrator.

The group’s board of directors has appointed Terry Leavitt-Chavez as the interim park administrator for Evelyn’s Park Conservancy, according to a July 14 release.

“With the new challenges for Evelyn’s Park Conservancy presented by the pandemic and by planning for a major Phase 2 Development project, the Board is excited to engage an Administrator familiar with all aspects of Park operations and who will partner with us to creatively craft solutions and opportunities,” said conservancy president Jerry Wische.

Leavitt-Chavez fills a position left open by Patricia King-Ritter who resigned as park administrator effective June 30.

Leavitt-Chavez has lived in Bellaire for the last 17 years, and comes into the position with a retail background in corporate management as well as experience as a volunteer leader with Evelyn’s Park Conservancy, in addition to an abundance of volunteer experience with several Bellaire groups, including Bellaire Cultural Arts Board and Condit Elementary PTO Board.
