We are pleased to share with you that the Board of Directors has unanimously named Stacy Jones as the next Chief Executive Officer of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire. Her first day in this role will be April 11, 2022.

Stacy comes to the Boys and Girls Club of the Sioux Empire with extensive experience in executive leadership roles, communications, and marketing. Throughout her career, Stacy has built teams, developed, and executed strategies, and guided comprehensive communication in complex situations. Stacy is a people-oriented leader with a passion for team building and personnel and organization development.

After more than a decade as a journalist with KELO-TV, she joined Sanford Health where she spent 13 years managing public relations, corporate communications, and marketing through much of the health system’s major growth. Most recently, she served as executive director of marketing and communications for Legacy Development and Consulting Company.

In addition to her professional career, Stacy has also served on multiple non-profit boards in the Sioux Falls area including the Sioux Empire United Way and Multi-Cultural Center of Sioux Falls. She is currently president of Brandon Valley Band Parents, Inc. - a volunteer, non-profit organization supporting band students in the Brandon Valley School District.

Stacy has a bachelor’s degree in both Speech Communication: Radio/TV and Political Science from Southwest Minnesota State University. In her spare time, Stacy spends time with her husband and two teenage children usually camping, boating, or attending music /band events and competitions.

The search process was conducted over several months by Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s CEO Search Team, in partnership with a Search Committee led by Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire board member David Long and other dedicated board members. I would personally like to thank Boys & Girls Clubs of America for their tremendous support during the CEO search process.

We are incredibly excited for Stacy to join the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire family and look forward to your interaction with her as she defines her vision for supporting our members. Over the coming months, Stacy plans to meet our community members, likely virtually and in-person. As you learn about her priorities, strategy, and goals for our Clubs and community, we know you will be as hopeful about the future as we are.

For Stacy, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire opportunity is an honor:

“I am thrilled, humbled, and honored to have been selected to lead the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire and to become part of such a valuable community-oriented organization. The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire is incredibly important, and the organization has tremendous impact on the lives of young people. To have the opportunity to directly impact the lives of so many children in area is truly exciting. I look forward to working with businesses, organizations, and other partners around the Sioux Falls area to inspire and enable all young people to reach their full potential."

We thank you for your continued support of our Clubs. Without your generosity and dedication, we would not be able to support the many kids and teens who enter our doors each day.
