Willistonian Glen Cuttitta, Colchester’s Parks and Recreation director, received the Theresa S. Brungardt “Professional” Award at the recent Vermont Governor’s Conference on Recreation.
Cuttitta was recognized for his service to parks and recreation in Vermont. He started his full-time recreation career nearly 20 years ago in Brandon, then in Shelburne, and has spent the last 13 years as the Parks and Recreation director in Colchester.
“(I) have worked on many projects with Glen and been impressed by his style, sense of humor and ability to get things done,” said Dick Pecor, Parks and Recreation board member, in a statement.
In addition to his professional work in Colchester, Glen’s volunteer work includes coaching his children’s teams in his hometown of Williston, including little league, basketball and soccer.
Theresa S. Brungardt was Vermont’s first state Director of Recreation. In 1975, the Vermont Recreation and Park Association established the award to encourage the improvement of recreation and park services in Vermont by recognizing outstanding recreation and park professionals, lay members and organizations. The awards are presented to a professional, friend, and organization every year.
