Name and Title
Tina Spallo, Superintendent of Recreation
Number of years with Jackson County Parks + Rec
The NAGAAA (North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance) Softball Tournaments is my proudest moment. The recreation division worked endless hours to make this tournament a success. From field prep to concessions the entire week went so well. Over 500 games were played on perfectly manicured fields. We received many compliments from the NAGAAA Board, the players, and spectators.
I have worked with this group for years on a national basis. When I found out NAGAAA was bringing their national tournament to Jackson County I began the recruitment process by meeting with the Board of Directors. I introduced them to the Frank White Softball Complex, its amenities, and our staff.
The opportunity to host a tournament attracting over 5000 participants and fans was very exciting. Showcasing our Jackson County Parks is our number one goal and we certainly attained that during the tournament. It was a total county effort as many individuals from downtown assisted in the success of this tournament.
I am so proud to be a member of such an incredible team of associates.
