Shannon Waters is the group sales and events coordinator at Cheaha State Park.

Shannon Waters is the group sales and events coordinator at Cheaha State Park. She enjoyed visiting the park for years before submitting her resume “on a whim.” As the group sales and events coordinator, Waters oversees several popular park rental locations and helps renters find the best venue for their needs. 

Why did you want to work at a state park, specifically Cheaha State Park? I have loved Cheaha for years. I have photos of my daughter here when she was a baby 13 years ago. I kind of stumbled into working here. I emailed my resume to Renee Raney — the Park Superintendent — on a whim, she responded in about three hours and I had a job in a week. I started at the store at the park, then the sales coordinator job opened.
