Rob Wright - Executive Coordinator

My name is Rob Wright and I am excited to serve as the new Executive Coordinator for Keep Putnam County Beautiful – Clean Commission. This organization serves a particular interest that I hold personally to heart, which is to continually create positive impacts to our community here in Putnam County through invested volunteers to ensure that we all live in a clean and beautiful area. It is through this cheerful service of volunteering time and resources that we can proudly call Putnam County an amazing place to live, and together as neighbors, we can continue to build on these positive impacts that this Clean Commission and our community has made over these last 30 years.

 

Originally from the Baltimore Maryland area, I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Recreation and Parks Management from Frostburg State University in 2013. In 2015, I moved to New Mexico to begin my career as a District Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, where I was responsible for camping programs, fundraising and recruiting new Scouts into the program. In February 2017, I transferred to Cookeville TN and continued to serve as a District Executive for the Boy Scouts representing Putnam, Overton, Jackson and Clay Counties before being promoted to Program Director for the Middle Tennessee Council in November of 2017, providing camp and outdoor programs across the Middle Tennessee. In my spare time, I enjoy building things, camping, hiking, climbing, being on the water, bowling and competing at trivia.

 

I had never heard of Cookeville TN before moving here, but I quickly fell in love with the area. With all the beautiful natural areas in and surrounding our county, our city and county governments support and investment of recreational opportunities and leisure services, as well as meeting the most friendly people I’ve ever met in this community, I knew I found my new home. Upon accepting this position as Executive Coordinator, I knew I found my outlet to help make positive impacts on this community that I love so much. It is my personal goal to help continue awareness and education to our community of the impacts that we make with our choices in waste, and provide opportunities for more of our neighbors to get involved in improving our living areas, in both cleanliness & beautification

DeLayne’s most recent endeavor is section hiking the Appalachian Trail.  However, she is most proud of her 4 children: Grace (25), Abby (23), Luke (21) and Joseph (19).  Happy Trails!

He is active in other civic organizations, especially the Tennessee Central Heritage Rail -Trail Board, which his friend Tara Wohlgemuth chairs. Over the 34 years he and Diane have lived in Cookeville, Tennessee,
