August 2, 2018

After a long search process, Transylvania County Manager Jaime Laughter announced Tuesday that Jared Mull has been selected as Parks and Recreation director.

Mull was serving with the county’s Parks and Recreation Department as the recreation program manager and is replacing Carleen Dixon, who left in November.

Mull came to the county department in 2015 with five years of experience all within North Carolina, serving in the city of Kannapolis and Mecklenburg County. Mull is a native of Transylvania County graduating from Brevard High School.

He attended Southern Wesleyan University, where he received his Bachelor’s in recreation in 2008. He continued his education at High Point University and received a Master’s in sports studies/recreation manage-ment in 2010.

Through the N.C. Recreation and Parks Association (NCRPA), Mull has received certifications, such as certified park and recreation professional and was named the NCRPA Young Professional of the Year in 2014 and selected to be a presenter at the 2018 NCRPA Programmer’s Summit.

“Commissioners have been investing in the staff and capital necessary to advance Parks and Recreation for Transylvania County over the last several years,” Laughter said. “Jared has been a part of that progress, and we are looking forward to continuing to advance the Master Plan that commissioners have adopted for Parks and Recreation with his leadership and working closely with our Parks and Recreation Commission. Jared has the professional and educational back-ground, combined with a genuine love for this community, that make him the right candidate to help realize a thoughtful and meaningful impact of parks and recreation in Transylvania County.”

Mull said he was looking forward to looking forward to working closely with Laughter, commissioners and the Parks and Recreation Commission to make progress on the master plan.

“I’m fortunate to already have a great team at both the Recreation Center and Silvermont that care about providing great programs and events for the community,” he said. “I’m also looking forward to working alongside a great group of county maintenance employees that do a great job of making park and facility improvements. I love this county, and I can't wait to serve the great people who live here in my new role.”

Mull and his wife, Jennifer, have a 11-month-old daughter, Madelyn, and a 7-year-old boxer named Max.

Mull will begin his new role immediately.
