LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness announced today that Drew Kelly, currently Director of Sales, Communications and Marketing, will succeed James P. Mathias as Executive Director of their 96,000+ square foot facility in East Buffalo Township.

Mathias, the Center’s founding Executive Director, began his involvement in October 2012 overseeing funding, construction and initial operational phases. He remarked, “I am so proud of what we have accomplished thus far and having Drew Kelly at the helm is a perfect fit for the organization moving forward. Joining such a talented group of individuals on the Board and helping to chart the course for the future of the Miller Center is very exciting to me.”
Kelly, who will immediately begin working with Mathias in a transitional capacity, said, “I’m extremely honored to lead this amazing facility and carry out the vision of a premier health and wellness resource for the region. Jim has done an incredible job making the center a reality. I’m extremely grateful that I’ll continue to benefit from his knowledge and expertise in the interim.”
Family representative Matthew Miller said, “We cannot thank Jim enough for his involvement with this project. From day one, he treated this Center as if it were his own, exhibiting an attention to detail that ensured our success before we opened our doors. Jim’s involvement ensured this project became a reality. We’re elated that he will continue as a board member. We are equally as enthusiastic to have a talented and seasoned team member in Drew Kelly who can step in and keep us on a course of continued success.”
