Ken Severn Named New Park Manager

Congratulations go to our new Park Manager: Ken Severn. He has been selected as the Park Manager for Harrington Beach State Park! Ken’s official start date was November 16, 2015.

Kohler-Andrae State Park has been Ken Severn’s refuge since 2007, following a demanding career in law enforcement as a street cop, metro drug unit investigator, and detective. At Kohler-Andrae, Ken has served as Lead Ranger, regional armorer, handgun, and rifle instructor. Now it’s time to take the next step. Ken’s wife of 32 years, Nancy, and their four adult children are as pleased as Ken is in accepting the Park Manager position at Harrington Beach State Park.

Ken will be greatly missed at Kohler-Andrae! Join us in welcoming Ken to the Harrington Beach Staff, and thanking him for 8 great years at Kohler-Andrae!
