The Northern Door YMCA in Fish Creek has a new executive director. Tyler Powell was promoted to his new position on Monday after serving as the youth director at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA. Powell’s father Dan was the previous Executive Director at the main YMCA location in Sturgeon Bay when Tyler was still in college. He says following his father’s footsteps could not have worked out any better.
The 32-year-old Powell grew up in Janesville and graduated from Luther College in 2013 before attending law school. While he attended school Powell worked in the YMCA aquatic department for five years. He says he has no regrets in not pursuing his law career and loves working for the non-profit organization.
