Decades of leadership in education, coaching and community service will advance nonprofit’s mission and vision.

Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Bob Ewell to the Board of Directors. Ewell, already a dedicated volunteer and program participant at Prescott Farm, looks forward to assisting the nonprofit with networking in the community and facilities management.

A Laconia resident and New England native, Ewell retired in 2014 after a distinguished 40-year career of teaching and coaching in high schools and colleges across the northeast.  Bob is a current member and past president of the Lakes Region Rotary Club and a charter member of the New England Burgermeister Club.

Ewell’s connection to the nonprofit organization began when his grandchildren attended Prescott Farm’s popular WildQuest Camps, where the emphasis on natural, outdoor education resonated with Bob and his family. Inspired by this natural philosophy, Bob has participated in ten years of volunteer service at Prescott Farm, including spearheading the Rotary-lead annual Youth Leadership program that brings together future leaders from high schools around the Lakes Region. He is a regular attendee of Community Connections programs.

“Bob’s commitment to community service is unsurpassed and we are thrilled that he is stepping up to this leadership role,” Prescott Farm Executive Director Jude Hamel said. “From his experiences teaching and coaching to rolling up his sleeves for maintenance projects, Bob displays incredible dedication to the Lakes Region. He’s truly a perfect fit for our organization.”
