My name is Deron Whatley, and I have been with the Y since November of 2018. I first started working with children after my freshmen year of high school at Camp Michindoh, and I worked there every summer from 2010-2018. I attended school at Spring Arbor University where I studied Youth Ministry. My favorite part about working with kids in the Y is getting to know a little about every kid that comes through the program. I love that I can challenge them and see students accomplish their goals. My hobbies include spending time with my wife, Brooke, and my daughter, Arabella, who is 3 months.
