Every Tuesday, during this season of thankfulness and giving, we will be profiling the fabulous people who are part of the DRC Team.
Paul Hetzler has been a member of our Board from the very beginning and graces us with his profound wisdom, razor sharp humor, not to mention his eagle eyed editing skills.
Name: Paul Hetzler
How long on the DRC Board and responsibilities? Two years on the board, general responsibilities.
Why do you serve on the DRC Board? Because I support the principle of self-directed learning and want north country youth to have that option, and am impressed with Maria's vision and dedication.
What do you do for a living? I serve as the Horticulture and Natural Resources Educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County.
What are you the most proud of? My two children, even though I can only take some of the credit.
If you could spend one day with someone you admire (living or dead), who would it be and why? I'd like to hang out with Jesus, and not for the wine. I want to know how it feels to be present with him.
Where did you grow up and why did you move to St Lawrence County? I “grew up” south of Rochester, NY. I got to know St. Lawrence County while doing tree work here after the 1998 ice storm, and moved here in 2000.
Name the last three books you have read. Weeds of the Northeast, The Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, Sugarbush Management. Page-turners, all of them.
If someone was going to give you a compliment, what would they say? Thank you for listening.
If you would like to join Paul, and the other members of the team, in supporting Deep Root Center, please give get in touch.
