Empriss Campbell

JACKSON, Tenn. - The West Tennessee YMCA recently lost their executive director and may decide to affiliate themselves with another 'Y' in the state of Tennessee.

Jerry Lee, who uses the 'Y''s services believed that would be a good idea. "Anytime you can get people in here to work out and accomplish somethings like that, I think it would be great myself."

Dennis Pearson said with the recent departure of the director, he feels the change in leadership could help.

"It's kinda like a body without a head. If there's no head, then there's no direction," said Dennis Pearson.

Lee said he comes to the 'Y' a couple times of weeks and said everything is running smoothly.
