Craig Benedict

Recreation Coordinator

Prior to joining the WLCR team, Craig has been a Physical Education teacher in Brighton Area Schools, Livonia Public Schools and some smaller private local and charter schools.  He grew up in Canton, Michigan and went to school at Madonna University for his undergraduate degree. A few years later he continued on to Wayne State and received his Masters in Physical Education, and has been working in education ever since.  He has two daughters that are 13 and 11, Kylie and Lea, and also three step-children that are 13, 14, and 17, Makenzie, Logan, and Zakkary. His wife Kimber is an accountant for Plante Moran, and they live in Brighton. When they are not crazy busy with all of the children, we love to travel, spend time at the beach in Florida, and be around our family and friends.  “I am very excited about my new role as I get to continue to get children and families moving and to be active, which is my true passion. I look forward to meeting everyone and working with you in the future!”
