Grace Hostetler has been named the new Nappanee Area Director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County. She replaces Mandy Gerber, who recently was promoted to Director of Programming and Training for the county.
“Grace has a long relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County and has served the members in Nappanee well. I’m confident she will carry on the tradition of strong, quality programming,” said President and CEO Tami Hicks.
Hostetler has worked for the Nappanee Club for more than seven years in a variety of roles. Most recently, she served Program Manager, developing and implementing quality programs for members.
“Over the past seven years, I’ve watched Grace learn the Boys & Girls Clubs culture and develop leadership skills. She is ready to find new successes as area director,” Gerber said.
Hostetler said she loves the relationships she’s built with members over the years and looks forward to the future.
“I’m excited to make new connections in the community with our supporters, families and donors. I want everyone to know about the great programs we have here in Nappanee,” Hostetler said.
She’s also excited to continue working with Gerber, who has mentored her throughout her career.
“In every area I’ve been in, I’ve been able to learn from her. She has helped my professional development and has always been a hand that is there when I need it,” she said.
Hostetler also praised the great team at the Nappanee Club.
“Our team has such strong relationships. There is great communication, and the entire group is dedicated to making this space a positive experience for our members,” she said.
