Daley named Hunter-Trapper Education Instructor of the Year

Harrisburg — Jim Daley, of Cranberry Township, Butler County,
recently was honored by the Pennsylvania Board of Game
Commissioners as the 2009 Hunter-Trapper Education Instructor of
the year.

“Jim Daley typically goes above-and-beyond the call of duty to
provide the best possible education program he and his team can,”
said Randy Pilarcik, Game Commission Wildlife Conservation Officer
(WCO) for Butler County, who nominated Daley. “With more than 30
years of service, his style of teaching keeps the students
interested and involved, and he shares that experience with other
instructors to strengthen the overall program within Butler
County.”

Daley is involved in at least seven classes each year, and is
the lead instructor for some of those classes. He spearheaded the
first Skills Station class in the district. He also serves as an
instructor for the Northwest Region orientation class for new
instructors, and is a certified remedial Hunter Education
Instructor.

“In addition to all of his efforts to conduct hunter education
classes, Jim reviews the test results from the nearly 700 students
to determine which questions are missed most frequently and he
compiles a report that we share throughout the district,” WCO
Pilarcik said. “This alerts all instructors about problem areas
that need to be covered more thoroughly so that we can deliver a
better program for future students.”

Daley is a vice-president with Skelly and Loy Inc., a
Pennsylvania-based environmental and engineering consulting firm.
He runs the company’s Pittsburgh office, and leads its federal
marketing efforts.

A graduate of Knoch High School, in Butler County, Daley earned
a bachelor’s degree in environmental resource management from Penn
State University. He also earned a master’s certificate in project
management, and is a project management professional.

Daley and his wife, Karen, have two sons, Jacob and Isaac.
