WINDHAM, N.Y. – The Adaptive Sports Foundation is pleased to announce the hiring of George Johnson as its Equipment and Buildings Manager.
George has worked as a mechanic for 24 years and has a vast experience in carpentry, electrical and plumbing work. Prior to accepting the position with ASF, he worked at Triebel’s Garage in Red Hook, N.Y. and served as a volunteer at his local fire department.
Besides his career as a mechanic, George also worked at nearby Hunter Mountain in the rental department. He assisted skiers and snowboarders in renting the proper equipment before a day on the slopes, as well as maintaining and making sure that the equipment was properly stored.
As a high schooler, George participated in a program that gave fellow students with disabilities the opportunity to ski at nearby mountains.
“I’m truly excited to start this next chapter in my life with the Adaptive Sports Foundation,” George said. “The ASF has such a great mission and I’m looking forward to being a part of this great team.”
The ASF is looking forward to having George join the team. He will be responsible for maintaining the Gwen Allard Adaptive Sports Center that the foundation calls home and the vast amount of outdoor equipment held inside.
The Adaptive Sports Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides profound and life changing experiences for children and adults with physical disabilities, cognitive disabilities and chronic illnesses through outdoor physical activity, education, support and community.
