We are happy to feature Kevin Jones, Business Development Manager with ACRT, in this month’s Volunteer Spotlight! The 2019 Tour des Trees will be Kevin’s 10th time participating in the event. Kevin has become an expected face at this annual reunion of tree lovers and cycling enthusiasts, and he truly embodies what it means to be a Tour rider and a TREE Fund supporter. Most recently, Kevin organized multiple fundraising efforts at the 2019 Ohio Chapter ISA conference, including a silent auction and a spirited “Heads or Tails” competition. Conference members couldn’t help but catch the TREE Fund bug after just one conversation with Kevin, discussing the beauty of trees and the importance of research with a sincerity that only he can portray (and exude).
The 2018 Tour des Trees proudly rode its course through Kevin’s home state of Ohio, where he was able to show off the state’s hilly terrain and local urban canopy coverage. The Tour des Trees riders planted a Nyssa sylvatica tree in honor of ACRT founder, Dick Abbott, and Kevin was highlighted in a feature video clip commemorating the event. We are privileged to call Kevin Jones part of our TREE Fund Family, and we are honored to recognize him in this month’s volunteer spotlight!
