A familiar face is leaving the local Y.
Kriquette Davis, the longtime Vice President of Operations at the Goldsboro Family YMCA, says the Y has been affected by the COVID-19 crisis, and that’s led to the elimination of her position.
Davis talked about her departure from the Goldsboro Family YMCA with Jeff Farrow on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 and 98.3.
She says her 32 years at the Y have been a “true blessing,” and she was able to help the organization grow and start collaborating with other community agencies.
Davis says the Y’s Men Outreach is one of her favorite programs that began under her watch.
Over 19 years, the Y’s Men program has raised over half a million dollars to help provide a good Christmas experience for over 1,300 families in need.
Davis has often used her stature in the community to share her own experiences and help others dealing with those same issues.
She says she has been able to work through her own child sexual abuse in a safe environment where she was also able to advocate for children.
Davis also started all of the sports programs at the Goldsboro Y.
A drive-thru celebration at the Goldsboro Family YMCA, 1105 Parkway Drive, will be held Thursday, July 30th at 5 PM to celebrate Kriquette Davis’ time and impact at the local Y.
