Interim CEO Takes Over, Todd Evenson Named Champion for Youth
With the departure of Boys and Girls Club of North SLO County CEO, Kate Morgans, at the end of January, the organization remains in the midst of deciding what to do for the future. After Morgans’ departure, board member Pat Bland became interim CEO until an agreement could be reached with the Santa Maria Boys and Girls Club.
As of April 1, Jeremy Deming took over as interim CEO until the board decides what its next steps will be. He will serve as CEO for six months.
“We’re just deciding what to do,” board chairwoman Nadine Sullivan said. “We have several options to choose from, so this gives us time to decide.”
The Santa Maria boys and Girls Club serves 2,000 children in 10 sites.
“They really do have the support we’ve never had,” Bland said of the Santa Maria club. Deming has been the CEO of the Santa Maria organization for the last three years and has overseen growth for donors, staff and programs.
The Boys and Girls Club offers after school care at a low cost to families, as well as all-day care when school is not in session at two locations in North County. In the summer, summer day camps are held from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Paso Robles and Atascadero.
