Scott Paschke, regional director for Ducks Unlimited (DU), received the 2013-14 Regional Director of the Year award for his outstanding efforts as a staff member of Region 6, an area that encompasses the Mid-Atlantic and New England states.
"I am honored and humbled to have been chosen as the Ducks Unlimited Region 6 Regional Director of the Year,” Paschke said. “I am so grateful for all the dedicated volunteers in Northern Ohio and Northwestern Pennsylvania who work tirelessly to conserve wetland habitat. They are the true reason for our success."
Paschke, a resident of Rome, Ohio, covers northern Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania and works with volunteer committees hosting fundraisers for the 77–year-old conservation organization. The events in his region raised more than $680,000 for DU’s conservation mission in the fiscal year ending in June 30.
Ducks Unlimited is the leader in wetlands conservation, and volunteers are the heart and soul of the organization. Coordinating more than 4,000 local fund-raising events, the volunteers generate more than 400,000 memberships and more than $50 million annually.
