Goldman succeeds Hirsh as director of Sultana’s paddling programs

CHESTERTOWN — Marcus Goldman has been named Sultana Education Foundation’s director of paddling programs, overseeing a six-person staff implementing on-the-water canoe- and kayak-based programs for 2,000-plus students annually.

He had been the associate paddling director since 2022.

Goldman succeeds long-time director Brad Hirsh, who will be joining the faculty of The Gunston School near Centreville as director of the Chesapeake Watershed Semester program.

“We are grateful for Brad’s incredible work and are confident that Marcus will build upon the significant success this program has experienced the past five years,” SEF President Drew McMullen said in a news release.

Goldman earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Indiana University and a master’s degree in environmental education from Slippery Rock University.

Prior to joining the Sultana Education Foundation, Goldman served as a classroom teacher at Radcliffe Creek School, an admissions counselor at Washington College and assistant director at Echo Hill Camp.

Joining Goldman on the leadership team of Sultana’s paddling department is Sophia Thomas.

A graduate of Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in ecosystem science and sustainability, Thomas has previously worked with the Housatonic River Association, the Mill River Park Collaborative and the New England Water Science Center — all based in Connecticut.
