Williston, ND (KEYZ) It may still be summertime by the calendar, but staff at the Williston Area Recreation Center (ARC) are gearing up for a BIG fall season of programs and activities of which you can be a part.  News Radio caught up with the gal responsible for pulling it all together and getting it in front of the public, Director of Public Relations and Marketing for the Williston Parks & Recreation District, Devyn Cox.

She's the Face of Marketing and Public Relations

Occupying the role for just a month, Cox says "it's been busy but really fun."  "It's been exciting."

While Cox is tasked primarily with communicating information to the public about WPRD events, programs and initiatives, she also works to gauge the public's overall experience with the District working to ensure that it is a positive one.
