Betsy McMillion has stepped down as Executive Director of Patapsco Heritage Greenway, an organization dedicated to preserving and restoring the Patapsco River Valley.
According to McMillion, she will continue to work with the organization on a part-time basis to manage the group's stream watch program.
The change will alllow her to pursue a life-long goal of teaching a college class at CCBC Catonsville Campus and conducting Ellicott City history tours, she said.
"I stepped down as Executive Director after a great deal of thought and concern for our organization, McMillion said in an email. "I decided to focus my efforts on the stream watch program. With the increasing amount of time and effort required, as well as the limited resources we have, our program continues to grow in attracting new volunteers and accomplishing so much, I couldn't do a good job managing both programs."
Kit Valentine, who has served as the group's president for the past 10 years, is also stepping down but will continue to serve on the organization's board.
John Slater, who assumed the role of president, will take over many of the duties previously overseen by the executive director, according to McMillion.
