Tuesday, September 17th, was a tremendous day for all of us involved with the YWCA Central Alabama. Kathryn Harbert, President of the Board of the YWCA Central Alabama announced that long-time YWCA Chief Executive Officer, Suzanne Durham, will be retiring at the end of 2013. The Board of Directors has appointed Yolanda Sullivan as Interim Chief Executive Officer to lead this new transition.
We’re at the beginning of another school year, and while students are getting back into the flow, the YWCA is gearing up as well with two programs to promote social justice and encourage healthy dating relationships.
The YWCA received a wonderful surprise from YWCA supporter Amanda Graves, National Executive Director of Thirty-One Gifts, and the more than 40 other consultants and directors from Thirty-One. As part of their Thirty-One Gives initiative, they collected items to donate to the YWCA from our KIDS (Kids in Distress) Korner wish list and women’s clothing and accessories for My Sister’s Closet.
