Town & Country Optimist Club is very pleased to announce that Evalyn Hodges will join us October 6th as our new Executive Director of Town & Country Sports.
Evalyn will have responsibility for the quality and safety of our campus, effective engagement and coordination with our volunteer-led sports associations, development of a welcoming, customer-focused culture, management of a high performance staff, and leadership in growing T&C Sports to serve more children and families.
Evalyn has more than 10 years experience working for a nonprofit organization, NW YMCA of Austin, focused on general fitness, group and personal training, and triathlon coaching.
Evalyn played team sports from childhood through college and credits this experience with developing key character and personality strengths that continue to benefit her life. Evalyn is active in running, cycling, weight training, swimming and triathlon.
Evalyn has a Bachelor of Arts in Business from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon and a Law Degree from The George Washington Law School in Washington, D.C.
Evalyn and Ben have been married since 1986 and have lived in Austin since 2000. They have two children, Keith and Elise, who are attending the University of Texas at Dallas.
Evalyn coached softball at Town and Country for three years when her daughter was younger. Evalyn is excited to be part of Town and Country because she believes that physical activity and team sports truly enhance our lives and are an essential part of the development of our youth.
She is eager to meet everyone and listen to your ideas. Please say hello if you see Evalyn on campus this fall. We are truly excited to welcome Evalyn to the Town & Country team.
