The Triangle Award Inspires Futures

Posted on 11/13/14 8:07 AM by Shakarra McGuire
I am Franck Simo, proud recipient of the Barbara Aaron Triangle Award in 2011. I am from the 2012 Senior Class of South Lakes High School and currently studying at Wheeling Jesuit University, located in Wheeling, WV. I moved to the US in 2008 from Cameroon (West Africa) to live with my mother and to most of all, cease the opportunity that this country has offered throughout its history to immigrants that want to better their lives. That opportunity for me has been to obtain a good education and to freely enjoy the fruit of my labor and as of today, I am still working towards that goal.

Passing of the Gavel: Welcome Keith Smith

Posted on 11/3/14 2:09 PM by Shakarra McGuire
Our Annual Meeting on October 23, 2014 was more than just an awards celebration… we also passed the gavel on to our new Board Chair Keith Smith! Keith brings over 30 years of public affairs experience as a Managing Director at Prime Policy Group, but his passion has been vested in the Y’s mission since childhood. Since the days his father ran an independent Y in Alabama, “I have seen this organization change lives and mold the character of young men and women, including my own,” he shares. Keith has volunteered for the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington since 1985, serving on branch Boards and now as association Board Chair. As Keith was handed the gavel in front of over 210 guests, he added: “Thank you for this opportunity. It honors my father that you let me volunteer in this meaningful way.”
