Sarah McLellan Recognized as a ’30 Under 30’ YMCA Leader
Congratulations to Sarah McLellan, who has been selected from more than 230 nominees from 80 associations for the first class of ’30 Under 30’ YMCA leaders honored by the YMCA's Emerging Leaders Resource Network.
As a 26-year-old female on the leadership team of a primarily male-led association, Sarah is passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion at every level. In sharing stories of scholarship recipients, highlighting staff in the newsletter and designing promotional materials, Sarah focuses on representing all members equally to ensure that new potential members, donors, and volunteers know they will be accepted and can thrive at the Y, as they are. After attending the EMLE Regional Conference in Charlotte recently, Sarah prepared a set of top priorities to focus on to help empower the emerging leaders at all levels. Sarah’s CEO trusts her to run with some of these initiatives, her first of which will be working with several interested board members to identify and begin engaging a more diverse pipeline of future board members.
Commitment to the Y
Sarah joined the YMCA in October of 2016, focusing on developing a culture of philanthropy at her three branches. Historically, her Association has not developed a strategic plan centered on fundraising; therefore, her first task was to do just that. Currently, Sarah and her team are in the silent phase of a $25 million capital campaign (expanding and renovating two of her YMCAs and building a new YMCA to replace a current express facility), and are days away from finishing the Friends and Family Division (staff and board gifts).

COMMITMENT TO THE Y
Tyler Jameson is a Senior Program Director at the Cannon Memorial YMCA. Tyler currently holds the Y-USA Team Leader Certification. He is passionate about the YMCA Movement and credits the Y helping him learn to embrace the role as the “do-er.” Tyler provides day-to-day leadership at his branch and helps with the branch budget, Annual Support Campaign, Staff Development and branch operations. Tyler says the Y has taught him so much about who he is as a person and he loves that his job allows him to pour into the community and make it a better place for all.
