YWCA announces new marketing director

CLINTON — Shannon Sander-Welzien, executive director of the Clinton YWCA, recently announced that Sarah Brubaker will be the YWCA’s new marketing director.

Brubaker will be joining the YWCA at a very exciting time in its history as the organization approaches its 100th anniversary of service to the Clinton community.

“We are thrilled to have Sarah join our great team,” Sander-Welzien said. “Her education, experience, and passion for the YWCA make her the perfect candidate for this position. We are confident she will take our marketing department to the next level.”

With a background in both management and marketing, Brubaker received her undergraduate degree in economics and her Master’s of Business Administration from Western Illinois University. Her affiliation with the YWCA began two years ago as a volunteer in the marketing department and as a member of the YWCA Marketing and Nominating committees, the Clinton MLK Celebration committee, and the Clinton Blue Zones team. Residents of Fulton, Ill., she and her husband, Marty, have two children, Owen and Liam.

“I am very excited to be working with this fantastic team of people that are all so dedicated to furthering the YWCA’s mission. Everyone here is focused on providing the very best services to the Clinton community, from fitness to childcare to domestic violence support, the YWCA does so much. I look forward to being a part of such a dynamic and caring organization,” said Brubaker.

The YWCA is a non-profit service organization that has served the Clinton community for more than 98 years. The YWCA’s mission, to empower women and eliminate racism, is the cornerstone of all of its programs. The YWCA looks forward to many more years providing quality programs and services to the Clinton community.
