Appointment of Kristen Harp as Youth Services Director

Kristen is a highly experienced professional who has served the Town of Ellington in various roles since 2003, when she started assisting the Recreation Department with assorted activities, becoming Camp Director in 2014.

Kristen took on the role of Administrative Secretary I for the Recreation and Human Services Departments in 2018, where she quickly proved her worth; she was promoted to Assistant Youth Services Director in 2019.

The Town of Ellington is extremely fortunate that Kristen will be leading its vibrant Youth Services Department with her background, knowledge and familiarity with the youth of Ellington and the community at large. “I’m excited to see Kristen continue to grow within this new role,” First Selectman Lori Spielman said. “She's been with us for a long time, and this is a wonderful opportunity for her to really dive in and develop new and exciting programs for our youth and families.”

“I am excited and honored to continue to serve the youth and families of Ellington in this new role, and to be part of the continued growth of the Youth Services Department,” Kristen shared.
