WKAR Event Coordinator Jen Preslar

At the next WKAR event, make sure to say hi to our amazing Event Coordinator Jen Preslar!

What do you enjoy most about your job? 
What I enjoy most about my job is making people smile, especially kids. Whether it's at a Curious Crew Roadshow, art festival, or live radio event, when I hand them a "magic" WKAR pencil (it changes color), their looks of wonder warm my heart. I also love that I can actually make a difference in people’s lives for the better. 

What role do volunteers play in helping you coordinate a successful WKAR event? 
A big part of making that possible is our station volunteers; we couldn’t do it without their help! Volunteers help with everything from working a registration table at a special event to interacting with the public at a festival or roadshow. Our volunteers are wonderful, and I really enjoy working with them!
