Brent Leisure has moved up to the position of the agency’s Chief Operating Officer.
Congratulations to Brent: Brent Leisure has moved up to the position of the agency’s Chief Operating Officer. While we are sad to see him depart State Parks, we are very appreciative for his leadership and support for Texas State Parks. In addition to our appreciation, his colleagues in the rest of the country have shown their appreciation by awarding him the Director of the Year – Distinguished Service Award among his colleagues and peers in the NASPD. While Brent was on an epic adventure on the John Muir Trail, Rodney Franklin was asked to accept the award on his behalf. Rodney will serve as acting State Parks Director pending hiring a permanent State Parks Director.
