Gary Schutrum grew up in the East Aurora Boys & Girls Club. At 25 years of age, the Club Board of Directors took a chance on him, hiring an experienced former Club member, whom they believed could learn, develop, and lead the organization. Gary has remained the Chief Executive Officer in East Aurora since that time in 1987. He has had the privilege and honor of leading the East Aurora Club for the past 34 years. Thanks to an extremely dedicated Board of Directors, a staff that honestly believes, and supports the mission of the Club and the entire EA Community -together, they have grown the Club to levels never imagined 30 years ago.
“The Boys & Girls Club of East Aurora changed my life when I was growing up in EA. I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to come back to EA and pay back to a place that gave so much to me. Hopefully, I have influenced a few lives along the way in a similar fashion as the previous staff influenced mine”. – GaryBack
