The YMCA of Delaware announced Tamisha Hopkins as the new executive director of the Sussex Family YMCA in Rehoboth Beach. Hopkins, a Pennsylvania native and graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, joined the Y seven years ago and initially served on the wellness team at the Bear-Glasgow Family YMCA in Newark. Over the years, she transitioned into the membership department, and then into leadership roles such as youth wellness director and senior membership director where she continued to demonstrate tremendous impact.

As the new executive director of the Sussex Family Y, Hopkins joins an excellent team, and she will oversee all branch operations. "In addition to bringing strong membership recruitment and retention skills, she also brings strong program and leadership skills, as well as a new level of energy and enthusiasm to the Sussex Y,” said Jim Kelly, chief operating officer for the YMCA of Delaware.

Hopkins and her husband Damon are the proud parents of three beautiful children. She is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and loves serving the community. On weekends she can be found spending time with her family watching movies and the Food Network.
