Briefly describe your career path?

Alex Birney, Director of Ellinwood Recreation Commission, has designed a great atmosphere for active lifestyles here in Ellinwood. When asked about his career path he said "I originally graduated from Ellinwood High School in 2010, after college, I decided to come back and start my family. I have coached and taught at the high school since I have been back, this job came open in May of 2015 and I have been here ever since. My degree in college is Exercise Physiology, so I feel blessed that one of the few jobs in the area that goes well with my degree opened up as soon as I moved back. "

What do you like to do in your free time in Ellinwood?

Alex Birney is also the head High School Football coach, Sprints and Jumps High School Track coach, and has done basketball in the past.
