Tim Petrea has joined the staff at the Waynesville Parks and Recreation Department as Program Specialist. The former Athens, Georgia, resident will over see Special Olympics, youth camps, family recreation and many other programs.
"I am very excited about becoming a part of the Waynesville recreation family," Petrea said.
