With the transition into retirement of the much-loved and long-tenured Indian Creek Camp (ICC) head ranger, Herb White, comes an introduction to the Conference family of the new head ranger, Ben Copley.
Copley grew up in the Springfield, Tenn., area, and attended Highland Adventist Elementary and Highland Academy from first grade through high school. He attended Southern Adventist University (SAU), as well as Chattanooga State, earning an associate degree in technology from SAU. Copley’s wife, April, is also familiar with the Conference. She graduated from Highland Academy and began her teaching career at Ridgetop Adventist Elementary School.
Copley comes to this role with a deep background of experience in both residential and commercial construction, and currently is in business for himself servicing and repairing wells in the Florida panhandle.
In recounting the special place ICC has had in his life, Copley shares that his fond relationship with the camp goes back 35 years, including time spent as a youth attending camp, working as camp staff, and in grounds and maintenance. He even proposed to his wife on the ICC boat dock! He also chose to be baptized at ICC by Fred Fuller, elder.
The Kentucky-Tennessee Conference is pleased to have Ben and April Copley and their children, Thomas and Kylie, join the Conference family!
