YMCA Young Leaders Luncheon
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development, all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
Our guest speaker this year is Dan McDonnell, University of Louisville baseball coach. With a long list of awards and College World Series appearances, Dan McDonnell is no stranger to success. Coaching Louisville’s nationally recognized baseball program, McDonnell transfuses his faith with the Cardinal mindset, setting out each day to keep God first and subsequently “win the day.” (FCA)
“Coach McDonnell understands the influence a coach has, and he capitalizes on the opportunity to not only make great players on the field, but great men off the field. He instills character, integrity and excellence, and always points back to Christ.”
– Chris Morgan, University of Louisville FCA Chaplain
The Young Leaders Luncheon recognizes those youth in our local high schools that possess the qualities McDonnell instills in his players: character, integrity, and excellence. The Owensboro Family YMCA provides an opportunity for local businesses to connect with these young leaders and award scholarships to two worthy recipients. Please consider joining the Owensboro Family YMCA in honoring our young leaders. Table sponsorships are available. Please contact the Y to help support our mission in shaping our community’s future! 270-926-9622
