New Boys and Girls Club director


The board of directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield appointed Kathleen Newcomb as executive director Jan. 23 after a national search that drew more than 100 applicants, said William Bowers, president of the club. Newcomb previously served as the club’s director of programming and operations and has worked there for about eight years, he said. The board interviewed applicants from as far away as Wyoming. “We were determined to find the best person for the role. While we were thrilled to promote from within, that was not a given,” he said. Bowers said Newcomb has a unique understanding of the club, cares deeply about it, and has a solid vision for its future. The club has 488 youth members, and many additional youths from the community use the facility, he said.
