John (Jay) Bledsoe, CHAIR
I serve the Y because I believe in the mission, respect the staff, and enjoy the members. The Y serves our community through serving kids and helping parents, something our community desperately needs. I enjoy watching the kids participate in the various programs; I am always happy to help in any way I can including serving on our Advisory Board. On to another hundred years!
I believe in the mission of the YMCA, and I believe in contributing to community causes. I am happy to do what I can to help.
Ella Joan Fenoglio
I love the community/family atmosphere of the Horn Y and was pleased to be invited to serve on the Board. I am committed to quality service for our members and ongoing acknowledgment and support for our staff.
I feel most privileged to have served on the Y branch and corporate boards for the past couple of years. I firmly embrace the Y’s mission that endorses family values and responsible living. More specifically, I fully support the efforts of the Y to partially subsidize families and kids by providing scholarships for programs and memberships they couldn’t otherwise afford.
Jill Wyatt Gonzales
I enjoy the multi-generational community at the Horn Y. I serve on the board to encourage the growth of programs that foster a family-oriented and inclusive community.
When we first moved to Albuquerque, finding the YMCA meant finding a friendly and welcoming place to work out and take a few classes of interest. Learning more about the Y’s strong programs that serve the children and youth of our community has inspired me to contribute where I can. Serving on the Horn Board gives me that opportunity.
I joined the Y seven years ago when I moved to Albuquerque. My experience with the Y is that it is family friendly with groups for all ages and the classes I attend are led by gifted, caring individuals. I participate in a number of classes; each has taught me something new as I continue my journey of fitness. Serving on the YMCA board allows me to return support to the organization, to support children and youth, and be connected in my community.
I serve on the board because YMCA of Central NM does an outstanding job for the community of Albuquerque.
