The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte has named a new executive director, responsible for leading the organization that runs seven Clubs in Mecklenburg and Union counties.
Amy Hudson has taken on the role recently vacated by Marty Clary, who retired after leading or supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs in Mecklenburg and Union counties (and previously Gaston County), for nearly 40 years, collectively.
Hudson brings a wealth of experience to the role. She specializes in nonprofit leadership, business management and developing community partnerships. She spent the past six years as the executive director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of High Point, N.C. There, she supervised all aspects of the organizations, implementing creative youth experiences, sports leagues, summer day camps, character development and health and fitness programs. Under her leadership, the Club experienced tremendous growth, including raising funds for the addition of a dedicated Teen Center at the Club.
“Amy made a tremendous impact leading the Club in High Point, changing the lives of hundreds of kids through her work,” said Major Todd Mason, area commander for The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. “We couldn’t be more excited about the difference we know she will make here in our community.”
Prior to her work at the Boys & Girls Club, Hudson served as program director for the Macedonia Family Resource Center in High Point and as an adjunct professor at Guilford Technical Community College.
