The Flagstaff Family YMCA would like to introduce the new Executive Director: Chris Aungst

Chris comes with a wealth of experience in the Y movement serving in various Executive leadership roles over the past 10 years at Y’s in Indiana.  Chris and his wife  Holly are both Arizona natives, growing up in Phoenix and attending ASU for college, before      relocating to Indiana to pursue their careers.  They are excited to have moved back to their home state to be closer to family and raise their two sons, Adam and Luke.

Chris joins the Flagstaff Family YMCA with aspirations of increasing the overall impact of the Y in the Flagstaff Community and to build programs and services that meet the community’s most pressing needs.  He is confident this can be accomplished through building relationships, pursuing strategic partnerships, increasing the number of volunteers, successfully fundraising, and strengthening the Y staff team.  Chris passionately believes in the Y’s mission and wants everyone to know that “the Y is a place for everyone where we focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and that living our cause everyday through programs that build a health spirit, mind and body for all will be our priority.”
