Honoring One of a Kind

Many of you might know her or have seen her out on the trails at the Canyon. The one and only Jo Ann Lieberman has been involved with the Canyon long before their gates opened to the public back in 2005. This past June, Jo Ann retired from her position as Academic Programs Coordinator in the Department of Pediatrics at the UT Health San Antonio. As a tribute to her forty years of service and dedication at UT Health, her associates in the Department of Pediatrics raised $2,890 for the Discovery Trail’s trailhead kiosk. The dedication was a surprise to Jo Ann and was presented to her during her retirement celebration.

Jo Ann is still very much involved the Canyon. She is an active member of Trail Patrol and is Co-Chair of the Activities Committee. She can be found out helping on trail work days, monitoring the trails, hosting guided hikes, and coordinating hikes and workshops for the Canyon. Next time you see her please make sure to tell her congratulations on her retirement and thank you for all her time and support she gives to the natural area!

And don’t forget to check out the dedication plaque on the kiosk honoring Jo Ann and supporters of the project, REI San Antonio and UTSA School of Architecture.
