MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA)- The YMCA of Montgomery is naming its 2013 YMCA
Man of the Year. Though the title is "Man" of the year, the award can go to a person of either gender.
This year, Kay McGaughey, a 40-year YMCA volunteer, was given the honor. She served as a student YMCA
advisor since her arrival in Montgomery in 1990.
Though she retired from
teaching in 2011, she has remained advisor to St. James' student YMCA. She and
her husband, Bob, are active members of First Baptist Church in Montgomery.
For 62 years, teens of the Montgomery student YMCAs have
shown their appreciation to the men and women dedicated to serving youth in the
community by planning and executing the YMCA's Man of the Year annual program
held the first Monday of December at Trinity Presbyterian Church. At the
banquet, students pay tribute to the nominees, one of whom is selected as Man
of the Year.
