Four Star Award honoree Spencer leaving Town post for Gatlinburg

Brittany Spencer, Town Special Event and Program coordinator, is leaving Farragut for Gatlinburg, where she will become the city’s Recreation Center manager.

She will be honored with a reception in Farragut Community Center from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 23, which also is her last day with the Town.

Most recently earning the Four Star Award from Tennessee Recreation and Parks Association for last year’s Freaky Friday Drive-Thru Boo event, re-tooled due to COVID-19, Spencer has led a variety of programs during her three-and-a-half year tenure in Farragut.

“We are so proud of Brittany and are not surprised that she is advancing in the parks and recreation field,” Sue Stuhl, Parks and Rec director, said.

“She has a rare ability of combining extreme creativity and attention to detail,” she added. The position of Special Event and Program coordinator is extremely demanding, and she has handled it with grace and a positive attitude.

“We are excited for her new adventure, but are sad to see her leave the Town family.”

“This was not a decision that I took lightly – I was not actively looking to leave Farragut, but this opportunity came up, and it is indeed a great opportunity,” Spencer said. “I am very sad to leave but excited for this new adventure.

“.... I have learned so many invaluable things from Sue and my other coworkers and will definitely miss working with them every day,” she added.

“... Thank you so much to the citizens of Farragut and the surrounding area for letting me make fun things for them to do the last 3.5 years.”
