Meet our Executive Director, Kathy Lock

kathyKathy Lock began her career with the Grand River Area Family YMCA (Chillicothe, MO) as a program director in 2003-2005. Kathy left the YMCA family to pursue a career in sales in Nashville, TN. After moving home and marrying her husband, Matt, Kathy recognized how much she missed the YMCA family and noticed a void of community connection in her hometown of Carrollton. With the help of many others in the community, the dream became a reality and the Carroll County Area YMCA was established in November 2012. Kathy was hired as the Executive Director in 2015. A 2003 Northwest Missouri State University graduate with  bachelor of science degree and double major in Recreation Corporate Wellness and Park & Recreation Management, Kathy is finally living her dream of helping others become healthy and creating a positive outlet for the community to enjoy.  Kathy enjoys spending time with her husband Matt, her three sons Will,  Jonny, and Ben, traveling to the beach, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals while secretly rooting for the  K.C. Royals & exercising.

Meet our Program Director, Bret Lyon

Bret Lyon
Hello, my name is Bret Lyon. I have been working for the Y for 2 years in April and have loved every minute. I live in Norborne, MO with my wife Kelsey and dog, Boxer. I graduated from Norborne High School in 2006 and went to college at the University of Central Missouri. Kelsey and I just welcomed our first child, Kortlynn in July. In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, staying active in the weight room, and coaching any type of team sport to help the youth in the community. I’m not saying that I am Batman BUT I do not think the Joker or Riddler has ever been seen in Norborne. ”

If you haven’t been in any of our wonderful programs or met Bret yet, please come by the YMCA. He too will greet you with a smile and help you in any way he can. Thank you Bret for all you do for our Carroll County Area YMCA!
