1. Jedidiah Hall, Who Has a Master’s Degree, Used to Work as a Park Ranger
Jedidiah Hall was featured in a blog post by the Tennessee State Parks.
At that time, the blog described him as park ranger for Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. The blog asked: “What experiences inspired you to work with Tennessee State Parks?” He responded,
I grew up in Chapel Hill, Tennessee, and spent my weekends and summers in the woods and on the riverbanks of Henry Horton State Park. Without much money to travel, Henry Horton became my family’s go-to summer destination. Growing up on the trails and swimming in the river made me fall in love with our state parks and being in the outdoors. When I got older and began working on my master’s degree at MTSU, I had the goal of being a teacher. However, the summer after my first year, I was hired by Henry Horton State Park as a Seasonal Interpretive Recreator. That summer changed my life, and I decided to teach park visitors about Tennessee’s history and natural resources.
The blog quotes Jedidiah Hall as saying his favorite thing “about working for state parks is witnessing the look in our visitor’s eyes when they connect with our state’s natural or cultural resources. That ‘wow’ moment makes all of the hard work worth it, and it makes me fall in love with our park system all over again. ”
Asked, “What advice would you give to someone that shows interest in working with Tennessee State Parks?” he responded, according to the blog:
Explore our parks when you can and find the thing that inspires you about the outdoors. Our parks preserve some of our state’s most precious cultural and natural resources, and there is something for everyone to enjoy when looking for a diverse career. I would also tell them to get involved! Volunteer at your local park by picking up trash, helping with waterway clean-ups, and assisting with resource management projects. Then when they feel ready, they can begin to seek employment as interpreters, maintenance crew, or trail workers.
