The smile you see on the face of the Boys and Girls Club of the Bay and Lakes Region CEO Lisa Kogan-Praska when she visits Door County is real and sincere. Kogan-Praska was named the CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay three years ago after a career that included a six-year stint as the President and CEO of Catalpa Health in Appleton. The Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay has extended its reach over the last 12-18 months as it formed partnerships with the organizations in Shawano and Door County. Kogan-Praska says they learned a lot from their experience working with the Shawano club that they are making sure they apply to Door County, though she admits she is taking plenty of ideas with her as well.
She is excited for what is to come for the Boys and Girls Club of the Bay and Lakes Region, including its summer programming and the expansion of its mental health resources for its members. You can listen to our whole interview by clicking on this link.
