Cullinan Park Conservancy (CPC) is pleased to announce the Officers of the Board of Directors for 2018.

Executive Director Angie Wierzbicki said, “I’m delighted that Gary Tuma agreed to a second term as Board President. During this infancy stage of the organization, it’s great to have the continuity of his leadership for another year.”

Gary Tuma, retired CEO of Smart Financial Credit Union, will lead the Conservancy in his second term as President. Tuma has been a Cullinan Park goer for years and brings a strong financial and community background to the organization.

Susie Goff was elected Vice President. Goff was Secretary in 2017, as well as Marketing Committee Chairperson and a key volunteer for the Conservancy’s inaugural fundraising luncheon in October. Goff is an involved Sugar Land resident who feels the Park is “a jewel just waiting to happen!”

Mary Von Tungeln was elected Secretary of the Board. Von Tungeln has been active in the Planning Committee for CPC and is a 27-year resident of Sugar Land. Having served on the Sugar Land City Council, numerous boards, commissions and task forces, she has a passion for preserving green spaces and parks for the community.

Robert “Bob” Richter was re-elected Treasurer for a second year. Richter is a municipal court judge in Missouri City living in Houston. He still makes time to be active in other parks and conservation organizations as well as the Conservancy.

Visitors to the 754-acre Joseph S. and Lucie H. Cullinan Park in Sugar Land will find a huge variety of flora and fauna, as well as trails. The Conservancy works to enhance the natural beauty of the Park for all by raising funds for capital improvements.
