New Wiregrass Boys and Girls Club Director

A man who once served as a boys and girls club member has taken on the role of president and CPO.

Lance Wave shakes hands with board members at the Wiregrass Boys and Girls Club office.

He served as the interim president when his predecessor left to start a Boys and Girls Club in Florida.

Wave has an extensive history with the boys and girls clubs in Alabama and Florida.

He says the announcement comes as a complete surprise.

“I was extremely excited. I've got the best board in southern Alabama, if not the state. I've got the most incredible teammates here and I’ve got the best kids,” said Wave.

Previously Wave served as the vice president of resource development.
