Greg Roe Named Executive Director of Boys & Girls Clubs of Rogue Valley


 
Grants Pass, OR - Boys & Girls Clubs of the Rogue Valley welcomes Greg Roe as their new Executive Director. Roe comes to the valley with high praise from former colleagues and community members. Over the last 15 years, Roe served as the Executive Director for United Way of Linn County (Oregon) and was instrumental in bringing impactful initiatives to their community, including programs that directly supported the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany and Greater Santiam. Roe stepped into his new role just in time for the after-school program to begin this week. 
  As an active Rotarian and volunteer with the Humane Society, Commission on Children and Families, and the Albany Chamber of Commerce, Roe’s life’s work has been to address critical needs and make positive changes in the community. “I’m dedicated to serving others and I look forward to doing the same for our communities’ youth and their families,” Roe says. “The youth are our future.”
