Yes, it is true. After 32 tremendous years with Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula, Steve Kast is saying goodbye.
But he says this is not an official goodbye. He will continue support our mission!
He shared this message with us today:
"Today is the day I am stepping down from my position as President & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula. I was a freshman at Christopher Newport University when presented with an opportunity to work for Boys & Girls Clubs. I have now worked for the Clubs for 32 years, which is my entire adult life. The staff, board members, volunteers, donors, and especially the kids are my family. I am humbled to have been asked to serve and lead an organization that makes such an amazing impact in the community. I have received greater reward from the organization than I could have ever imagined. When asked how I would like to be remembered, I quote Cal Ripken, Jr. in his farewell address to baseball, "to be remembered at all is pretty special." I look forward to supporting the great work of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula for many years to come. Thank you all for supporting me, but especially for supporting the kids who need us the most! "
Thank you, Steve, for all that you have done for this community. We look forward to the incredible impact you will continue to have on the Peninsula.
