Hellos and Goodbyes

Gay Central Valley is pleased to introduce our 2014 Board ofDirectors.

President: Chris Jarvis
Secretary: Kaylia Metcalfe
Treasurer: Kelly Campbell-McKay
Member: Kayleia Southard.

We would also like to thank our two departing Board Members Kate Henry and Leon Valasco.

Leon was not just a Board Member; he served as Outreach Liaison and was the founder of “Latino day” at the Community center. A volunteer with GCV for almost two years, Leon’s work tabling and networking at resource and health fairs helped GCV expand our reach into the community.

Recently, Leon received his AA degree from Fresno City College and has begun the next exciting chapter of his life: working in the field of social work! We congratulate Leon on meeting his educational goals, and we wish him all the best in his new endeavors.

Kate Henry served on the Board of Directors for three years in various roles. The quintessential “Straight Ally” she represented GCV on the Chief’s Advisory Board as well as being a fierce advocate for GCV behind the scenes in uncountable ways. Her work with the Marjorie Mason Center and her creation of a comprehensive Cultural Competency Training Program were both highly successful and instrumental in helping GCV fulfill some of its community building goals.

Kate is stepping back from an active role on the GCV Board of Directors but will remain active in the community. She will be focusing her energy on behind-the-scenes fund development through grant writing, but we will sorely miss her at our BOD meetings.

Thank you both for your time and your hard work on behalf of Gay Central Valley.

What a team! Leon, Kelly, Kate, Chris, Kayleia, and Kaylia!
