New directors hired at YWCA

CLINTON — Two new directors have joined the YWCA.

Megan Pope and Allie Kibler are new to the YWCA. Pope came at the end of 2013 as a new accounting director and Kibler is the new youth director.

Pope received her Bachelor of Arts in accounting and business administration with an emphasis in finance from Dubuque’s Clarke University.

“I am happy to be at the YWCA and, now that I’m settled in, I’m looking ahead to my role in ensuring that the YW continues down its path of maintaining fiscal responsibility to its staff, members, donors and the community at large,” Pope said.

Kibler's duties include the YWCA’s after school program, Wednesdays at the YW, holiday camps and summer camp.

Kibler holds a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education from Ashford University. Her experience with youth includes serving as a long-term substitute elementary school teacher as well as working as the afterschool site facilitator for Clinton’s Student Adventures program.

"I am looking forward to creating new programs for area youth within an already great afterschool and summer program," Kibler said. "My goal is to create activities that enrich academics through exploration, imagination, and creativity."

YWCA Executive Director Shannon Sander-Welzien said the group is excited for the new staff members.

"They both bring a great deal of new ideas, experience and excitement to their respective positions," Sander-Welzien said. "They are already making such an impact in our organization; we are thrilled to have them on board.”
