BROOKHAVEN — Lincoln Civic Center has grown over the past 15 years. Quinn Jordan, director of the Civic Center , was behind the growth as he oversaw the addition of an RV park, the rodeo barn, additional ball fields and a multipurpose building.

At Monday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, Jordan officially resigned through the county administrator. Jordan said he didn’t have a comment at the moment but would like to speak in December about his next chapter.

Daniel Calcote, the county administrator, said Jordan’s final day as the director is Dec. 31, 2022. Calcote is responsible for collecting applications for the position. People interested in the position can bring their applications to him.

The Civic Center Commission is named by the Board of Supervisors so they will make the final decision on hiring Jordan’s replacement. Jordan started as director of the center in Jan. 2007.

“He has been there a long time but I think he has some other work he wants to do,” Calcote said. “He has done a good job and it has grown a lot in his tenure. There is a lot to the job but I think it can be an exciting job for someone. Quinn has done a good job and handled events and the public well.”
