An Ogallala native has been named the new park superintendent at Lake McConaughy, effective November 1.
Colby Johnson, born in Ogallala and a South Platte High School graduate, says he’s excited and looks forward to coming back to Nebraska and working with the people of Keith County.
Johnson has been the assistant golf course superintendent for the Campbell County Parks and Recreation Department in Gillette, Wyoming, since May. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a bachelor of science degree in turfgrass and landscape management.
Roger Kuhn, parks division administrator for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says Colby, being from the area, is familiar with the community and the lake, which will help to enhance good working relationships with partners in the area.
