Ferguson, Headley join Wood County Park Board

Wood County Probate Court Judge David Woessner has appointed Rebecca Ferguson and Wendy Headley to the Wood County Park District Board of Commissioners. Both will serve terms beginning Jan. 1 and continuing through Dec. 31, 2025.

Ferguson and Headley are longtime residents of Wood County with strong interests in the quality of Wood County parks and each have decades of administrative and business experience, Woessner said in a press release.

In addition, both women have a history of strong public service as is evident by their participation in numerous boards, commissions and community events.

“Their commitment to the parks along with their combined extensive experience in business and community affairs will benefit the Wood County Park District and all of its users in the upcoming years,” Woessner said.

There were eight candidates for the two open seats on the five-member board.

“It was also truly encouraging to have eight outstanding applicants for our two board vacancies. I enjoyed speaking with all eight. The was a decision made more difficult by the caliber of the applicants — an encouraging sign as we move forward,” Woessner said.

Ferguson and Headley replace outgoing board members Dennis Parish and Kim Rose.

“I would like to publicly thank Denny Parish and Kim Rose for their service on the Wood County Park District Board of Commissioners. Their work on the Park Board and their work in many other areas of their communities have truly benefited the citizens of Wood County,” Woessner said.
