It is with some sadness that we let the community know that Teddy Krolik will be leaving RHIC at the end of this month, but it is also with great excitement that we look forward to the step he is taking. Teddy will be joining an urban planning graduate program at MIT, and we know that it will be just one more step in Teddy doing great things to help urban communities.
Teddy joined the RHIC staff in 2010 as our Environmental & Sanitation Program Director, and has since then become an integral part of RHIC and Reservoir Hill life. Under his leadership, our urban environmental program has grown both in practical accomplishments, such as hitting 500 trees planted since 2009, in city-wide respect, and in our volunteer base. Last year we hit a new volunteer record with over 400 volunteers contributing over 7,000 volunteer hours. Teddy’s compassion and feeling for the people who make up our community, and his passion for the work have left an indelible mark, and he will be missed. Thank you, Teddy, for your friendship, devotion, and hard, creative work.
