Mole is new Superintendent at Jordan Lake State Recreation Area

RALEIGH -- Shederick Mole, superintendent at Jones Lake State Park since 2004, has been named superintendent of Jordan Lake State Recreation Area in Chatham County, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. Mole succeeds Greg Schneider, who was named south district superintendent in October.

A superintendent is the chief of operations and administration at a state park or state recreation area with wide-ranging responsibilities for staffing, training, law enforcement, visitor services, natural resource protection and environmental education.

A native of Brevard County, Fla., Mole earned a bachelor's degree in parks and resort management in 1993 from Concord College in Athens, W.Va., and worked for one year at Pipestem State Park in West Virginia. He joined the North Carolina state parks system in 1995 and worked for almost 10 years as a senior ranger at Kerr Lake State Recreation Area. He holds environmental education and advanced law enforcement certifications.

'Shederick has proven his abilities as a state park superintendent and at Kerr Lake, he gained solid experience handling the broad and complex operations of a reservoir-based state recreation area,' said Division Director Lewis Ledford. 'He's an excellent choice to head the management team at Jordan Lake, another of our most popular state park units.'

Jordan Lake State Recreation Area includes seven separate recreation sites on the 14,000-acre reservoir with more than 1,000 campsites. The park recorded 1.05 million visits in 2006.
