I am deeply saddened to share with you that a member of our team at the Y, Wa’Kena Jackson, has lost her beloved mother to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you have worked with Wa’Kena, who is our Director of Special Events. Most recently, Wa’Kena managed one of our most successful Annual Campaign kickoff events, this past January at the Albany Marriott.


I ask you to please join me in praying for Wa’Kena and her family during this unimaginably difficult time.
