Selma – My Kid’s Club has named Alison Gammage as the new Executive Director. In her role, Gammage is responsible for managing the strategic planning and operation of the Club in support of its mission for 200 plus youth that the Club now serves in Selma, Smithfield, and Benson.
Gammage has held several leadership positions, most recently as Lower School Head of St. Timothy’s School in Raleigh. She was previously the founder and director of the Teaching and Learning Center at The National Cathedral School in Washington D.C. and is a regular presenter at national and state conferences on various educational topics.
A graduate of Oxford University in the UK, and American University in Washington, D.C., Gammage has spent nearly 30 years as an educator and administrator, designing curriculum and pedagogy based on research, and raising money to support educational programs for underserved students. Her ‘true passion’ is working and advocating for parents and teachers with a goal of helping children reach their potential.
As the first child in her family to go to college, Gammage has first-hand experience of what it takes to “follow a dream.”
“It is wonderful to be working in Johnston County,” Gammage said. “I grew up in a rural part of England, and as I drive down Highway 70 on my way to work the rolling fields remind me of home.”
Gammage added, “I am thrilled to be working with our dedicated team of staff, Board members and volunteers, all of whom help our Club members by creating quality programs that help children feel successful, realize their potential and shape their futures. Being part of My Kid’s Club is tremendously rewarding and I feel blessed to be in this role.”
The goal of My Kid’s Club is for every child to achieve academic success, live a healthy lifestyle, and develop good character and citizenship, which takes a great team of counselors, volunteers and a lot of community support. My Kid’s Club has the privilege of showing children and families we not only care but can help them be successful, no matter what obstacles they may face.
My Kid’s Club launched in January 2019 and is the former Boys & Girls Club in Selma. Visit www.mykidsclub.org for more information or call 919-351-1559.
