Four community members recently joined The Family YMCA’s Board of Directors, adding broad experience to the organization, Y CEO Linda Daly said.
Jennifer Guy, assistant superintendent at Los Alamos Public Schools and Daniel Alman, director of IT at Los Alamos National Bank joined the Y’s Board Thursday. Laura Crucet, owner of the Pig + Fig and Allison Majure, Communications, Regulatory and Stakeholder Interface at N3B-Los Alamos, joined the Board in July.
Guy has lived in the community for 15 years. A longtime educator, she most recently served as Mountain Elementary School principal for the last five years. She has been a longtime Y member. She has three sons who have enjoyed YMCA programs for many years, and said that her husband, John, is a racquetball player.
“I look forward to supporting the programs that the Y offers the community,” Guy said.
Daniel Alman moved from Ft. Worth, Texas to Los Alamos in 2015, with his two young children Eric and Heidi.
“I’m particularly grateful and impressed by the safety of the community, and the level of support we have received from my children’s schools,” he said.
Alman has an MBA and background in cybersecurity, process and policy development, and budget management. Alman was a former Scout Leader, and enjoys hiking the mountains of northern New Mexico.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to better serve this community as a board member of The Family YMCA,” he said, adding that he hopes to apply his talents to educate, motivate and inspire others.
Despite the obligations of being a small business owner, Crucet said the thought of serving on the board resounded with her.
“When I first moved to Los Alamos, The Family YMCA welcomed our whole family with open arms. The vast array of activities we found, and the network of people we met made moving with two small children to a new town so much easier. It’s been many years since then, but going to the Y still feels like home,” she said.
Majure said her children are proud alumni of the Y’s afterschool and Character Counts programs.
“The Y’s fitness offerings provide wellness-based ways for my family and my community to get together,” Majure said. “Y financial assistance and programs support community and regional inclusion for people of all walks of life. When Board service was suggested to me, I responded immediately with a ‘Yes!’”
