KOA Names Bartels Workampers of the Year
The Kampgrounds of America Owners Association named Rob Althoff and Marianne Bartels the KOA Work Kampers of the Year for 2010 during KOA’s annual International Convention in Savannah, Ga.
The couple was nominated for the award by Kathy and Stuart Marshall, the owners of the Montpelier Creek, Idaho, KOA Kampground, according to a news release.
“We, as owners, could not imagine our campground without them,” the Marshalls said in their nominating letter. “Without a doubt, the reason we have been so successful the last two seasons is directly relate to their customer service, loyalty and dedication to us and our campers. We were blessed when they answered our posting on the Work At KOA website” the Marshalls said. “We know, as owners, that customer service is No. 1, and they share that belief.”
The award was presented by KOA Owners Association President Tina Haith, who is also the owner of the Oklahoma City East KOA Kampground.
The award ceremony was part of the KOA Work Kamper University and Job Fair, held in conjunction with the KOA International Convention.
The convention concluded Wednesday.
