Angie Miller, the president and CEO of the YMCA in Selma, grew up in the area, and she said she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t happy here.

On Thursday, watching 150 kids, parents, volunteers and YMCA staff at the opening night of the city’s soccer season, Miller said it was just another sample of the good in Selma.

It’s partially that spirit of togetherness that makes Miller enjoy her job directing the Y, she said.

Miller said she’s been working for the Y since 1992, and if the 12 hour days are any indication, it’s got to be her favorite place to be.

Lately, Miller said, she’s been working on the new YMCA facility on Medical Center Parkway.

Miller said the new facility is another example of the giving nature of Selmians.

Miller invited people to come out and be a part of the fun during the Y’s soccer season.
