The YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne and the Whitley County Family YMCA jointly announced this morning that Kameron Bailey has been named the new Sports and Aquatics director of the Whitley County Family YMCA.
Bailey graduated from Huntington University in 2010, where he majored in Recreation Management. While in college, he was captain of the Huntington University Varsity Track and Field team. He also gained recreation management experience through his service on the Huntington University Game Day work crew and Volleyball Game Day coordinator.
A Columbia City native, Bailey grew up playing Y sports at the Whitley County Family branch.
In 2009, he served as a Y summer day camp counselor.
“All of Kameron’s past positions and opportunities have lead him to be skilled and qualified to take on the role of Sports and Aquatics director. He has great community ties and a strong willingness to learn. His degree, combined with his passion, are going to be a great fit in the Whitley County Y and our community,” said Erica Miller, executive director of the Whitley County Family YMCA.
In his new role, Bailey will not only continue the programs already being offered through the Whitley County Family YMCA, but will also supervise all of the sports programs and aquatics programs. Bailey will also uphold the Y’s commitment to strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. He will begin his new position beginning April 11, 2011.
“I am anxious to use my recreation and activity skills within a well established organization. I was once on the other side and I would love to pay that forward to the youth today because of the influence it had on my life,” said Bailey.
