Vice President: Mike Barrick

Living in Mt. Pleasant I get to enjoy the outdoors and the benefits of our watershed. I hope our group helps everyone realize how important it is  to preserve and enjoy the world we live in.

Secretary: Doug Coffman

For over 10 years I have been attending clean ups organized by JCWA with my wife and two sons. My hobbies include hiking, biking, gardening, and building projects in and around my house.

Growing up in Laurelville, I swam and fished in Jacobs Creek. I currently enjoy hiking, kayaking, walking trails and gardening.

General Members:

Gena Hoyer

I’ve been a member of JCWA since 2017, am a part of the recreation committee, and have been on the board for the last year. I have seen the wonderful and valuable work JCWA has done over the years and am grateful being a part of it.

Amanda Eutsey

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I recently relocated to Scottdale to raise my 2 kids with my husband on our historic homestead. I enjoy JCWA because I am passionate about conservation, educational outreach, and community improvement.

Dana Pacolay

I am reliable, determined, and goal driven. Originally a biology teacher, I have always been passionate about protecting the environment. I am a mother of 4 and a National Board-Certified Special Education Teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years.

Bethany Eutsey

As a member of the local community, I feel it is very important to protect the environment that we live in. My background lends well to servicing on the JCWA board of directors; as I have been a science teacher for 17 years and serve in the United States Air Force reserves as a medical entomologist. My goal is to make informed decisions that help keep our watershed clean for future generations.
