“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” Today is very bittersweet for us, as we bid farewell to our President and CEO Sandy Walker, who is headed west to become the CEO at the YMCA of Silicon Valley. Everyone inside the Y and out has seen what Sandy’s leadership has meant to our community over the past 11 years. While she will most definitely be missed, we wish her nothing but the best in California. We want to thank Sandy for the positive impact she has left on our community, and we can’t wait to see the amazing work you will do in the Bay Area. Best of luck! #ForABetterUs
