The mission of the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority is to serve Centre Region residents of all ages throughout the year with a variety of recreation opportunities to enrich their lives through participation in programs, use of facilities, provision of leadership resources and technical assistance, and serving the participating municipalities' residents and groups.
The Authority membership includes five municipalities--the Borough of State College and the Townships of College, Ferguson, Harris, and Patton--and the State College Area School District. Each municipality appoints one volunteer representative to serve a five-year term on the Authority, plus one representative from the State College Area School District who is appointed by State College Borough Council. In October, 2011, the five participating municipalities re-authorized the future of the Authority for January, 2012 through December, 2061.
The 2020 Authority members are pictured to the right. Shannon Messick (SCASD), Bill Keough (Ferguson Township), Jim Dunn, Vice-Chairperson (State College Borough), Kathy Matason, Chairperson (College Township), Cindy Solic, Secretary (Patton Township), and Diane Ishler, Treasurer (Harris Township). UPDATE: Jim Dunn completed his service in May 2020; the new Borough representative is Tom Daubert (not pictured).
