Our people: Man of steel

Shane Nelson, associate executive director of the Clovis Family YMCA, made the first big move of his life to bring the Y back to Clovis after over 30 years.

Nelson, a husband and father of two, has worked for the Y for five years.

“I love my job because it allows for me to change the lives of children and families in a positive way. Is there really a better job than that?” he said.

In his spare time, Nelson tends to the fish tank he installed in the YMCA and coaches youth soccer.
