CBGC unit director Monnier announces resignation

Cory Monnier, unit supervisor at the Culver Boys & Girls Club since the summer of 2010, has announced his resignation from the position as of May 24.

During his tenure, Monnier saw the club expand its already-sizable influence on students in the Culver Community Schools district, growing in number to nearly 400 youngsters in 2012, with an average daily attendance at the Culver Elementary School-based after-school program of some 90 children. Summer offerings were also enhanced under the leadership of Monnier, who was consistently passionate in his promotion of the Boys & Girls Club program in general.

Prior to taking the job at Culver, Monnier was program director in charge of athletics at the Valparaiso club, part of the same Porter County BGC of which Culver is a part.

"I have truly enjoyed my time in Culver helping to mold the lives of our young people," Monnier wrote in an email announcing his resignation. "I have seen our youth and our Club grow so much over the last three years and I have complete confidence it will continue to grow in my absence. This community has been such a tremendous support for our Club and I would like to thank each and everyone of you for the part you have played in its success."

Monnier, who has taken a position with another company, emphasized he hopes to stay involved in the club and community in some volunteer capacity going forward.
