- No details immediately available on sudden departure
Dr. Nancy S. Berkheiser resigned from her position of CEO of the YMCA of Clay County late Wednesday morning, "effective immediately in order to pursue other opportunities", according to YMCA Board President Dr. Michael Dalton. Berkheiser could not be reached for comment prior to press time.
Dalton stated that the Executive Committee of the board will not delay its search for candidates to fill her position. He also claimed the YMCA's "many dedicated employees and board members" will strive to ensure that Berkheiser's departure will not have any effect on the organization's programs or provided services.
"The Clay County YMCA Board of Directors understands the importance of its responsibilities in setting and maintaining the direction of the YMCA in regard to operations, programming and stewardship of donations. It is with this in mind that the YMCA will continue to be the premier resource for recreational activity in Clay County."
More information on the details surrounding Berkheiser's replacement may be available after the YMCA Board meets this evening.
