YMCA has a new executive director

Deborah White has been named the new executive director of the Clermont Family YMCA.

White, who was introduced to the Clermont community in a meet and greet event held at the Batavia YMCA facility June 30, was chosen from a number of interested candidates after a nation-wide search to replace former director Whit Hickman.

“I am very excited to join the YMCA in Clermont County,” White said. “I look forward to fulfilling our mission of instilling Christian principles in all of our programs to build healthy spirits, minds, and bodies.”

As the executive director, White, who is also the CEO/Director of the Ross County YMCA, will be responsible for the overall management of the facility, and most importantly, she said, community relations.
