In Remembrance of Kendra
Seno Loses a Good Friend
We are deeply saddened to report the loss of Kendra Johncock, Education Director at the Seno Woodland Education Center.
Kendra, who passed away on August 12, 2013, was not only director of programs but did so much more. Through the years
she became the glue that held Seno together. Besides scheduling and presenting programs to the various audiences,
she was the office administrator who maintained the budget, did the publicity and outreach and was the face of Seno.
Kendra began working with Seno and the WWOA Foundation in 2001. We will deeply miss her dedication and hard work that has
led to Seno's growth. She was one of the main building blocks of the growth of the Seno Center and an activist for
environmental education. We will post further details as they become available.
Notice: Due to the loss of Kendra Johncock, no additonal school or landownrer
programs will be scheduled until further notice.
