Not everyone makes the leap from aspiring graffiti artist to valued county employee, but Port Townsend High School junior Megan Walsh managed the transition with aplomb. Walsh, who was experiencing what she called her “rebellious phase” in middle school, was caught writing on the gym wall at the Jefferson County Rec Center. But instead of cursing her fate and trudging through her hours of community service, Walsh kept a positive attitude and became more and more involved. Chris Macklin, Jefferson County Parks and Recreation assistant manager, said Walsh approached even the most thankless tasks – such as cleaning toilets and picking up trash – with enough enthusiasm to inspire employees, including himself. “Every second that Megan walked down here, this place was more fun,” Macklin said. “It was like literally having fireworks going off at the Rec Center all the time.” For her part, Walsh said she enjoyed spending time at the center and with the employees so much she decided to stay on and apply for the first year of the junior counselor-in-training (CIT) program. From there, she went on to become a camp counselor and finally applied for her current position as a recreation aide. “I think that’s why I’ve stayed with the Rec Center this long: It’s that I really like spending time with kids. It seemed a lot better to me than serving at a restaurant,” Walsh said. “It’s really fun to me; it’s a fun job.”

She said she felt the programs and the center play an important and positive role in the lives of many middleschool and high-school students. “I think I just really liked being a part of this community ... it’s just a really good environment in here,” Walsh said. Kaylie Webber, recreation aide supervisor, said there were 27 CITs last year. She said the program is for 11- to 14-year-olds and allows that age group to get some real world job experience. Webber said the CITs often act as the bridge between

Delma said the Building Futures program provides bridges between adults and youth, as well as older and younger students. “There’s always time.
