With the retirement of Parks and Recreation Director David Nelson after more than 30 years of service, the city embarked on a search for a new director.
After several interviews, the city has selected James Goblirsch as the new Vermillion Parks and Recreation director. He will begin his duties in Vermillion in late February.
Goblirsch comes to Vermillion from his most recent experience as Recreation Director in Casper, WY. He is a Minnesota native who attended college in that state before transferring to and graduating from South Dakota State University.
Previous work experiences include a recreation therapist position at HSC in Yankton, teaching a class at SDSU, serving as Community Education Director for the Canton School District, and a position as a Recreation Program Coordinator for the City of Sioux Falls.
Since October 2007, Goblirsch has served as Recreation Supervisor for the City of Casper, WY.
With his experience in facility management, recreation administration, and community relations, we are excited to have him and his family joining our community.
