The Mount Shasta Trail Association (MSTA) is excited to announce that Barry Price has assumed the reins as the association’s president. Barry has been active on MSTA’s board of directors since 2007, and he stepped forward when prior president John Schuyler announced that he was stepping down recently.
Barry has long been active with nonprofits since leaving the university womb. He served as president of the San Mateo County Lung Association for two years in 1974 and 1975. He spent years in the Bay Area working as a lawyer and businessman, but he also hiked frequently in the Marin Headlands—Tennessee Valley and Pt. Reyes– Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Butano State Park in San Mateo County, and the East Bay Regional Park District. Golf was not the diversion of choice. When he and his wife Joy relocated to the Mount Shasta area in semi-retirement, the Mount Shasta Trail Association seemed like a natural. “Working with the highly competent fellow board members, officers and volunteers of the MSTA has been a pleasure,” he reports, “and the partner organizations, Siskiyou Land Trust, BikeShasta, Mount Shasta Rotary Club, the Forest Service, Cal Parks and Rec, City of Mount Shasta, Siskiyou County are great assets.”
Don’t be surprised to run into Barry on an area trail, hiking with one of the local groups or assisting with a hike sponsored by MSTA. Beyond a reasonable doubt, Barry will provide excellent leadership into the future.
