YMCA of Central Ohio

Welcome Two New YMCA Directors

Officials at the YMCA of Central Ohio recently announced two new executive directors. Cory Hughes was named Executive Director of the Jerry L. Garver YMCA and Steve Stevenson as Executive Director of the Eldon & Elsie Ward Family YMCA.

Cory Hughes has held several positions with YMCAs in Wisconsin throughout the past eight years, most recently serving as the Member Engagement Director for the Rite Hite Family YMCA in Brown Deer, WI. He connected members with programs and helped change lives through healthy connections and relationships that created a community of long term members with vested interest in the Y.

He enjoys spending time with his wife Victoria, his daughter and two stepchildren. His hobbies include studying history and comparative literature. Welcome, Cory!

Prior to joining the YMCA of Central Ohio, Steve Stevenson managed the day-to-day operations of City Year in six different cities. He has a degree in education from Point Park College and has been actively involved with grassroots organizations for years.

"I still mentor and help guide hundreds of young people all over the country," Steve said. "I have an even bigger sense of obligation now that I’m a husband and a Father of an 11-year-old daughter. I try to set the right examples for her and every young person that I come in contact with." Welcome, Steve!
