Erik Kaeyer of Wilton has been elected board president, Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester.
Kaeyer is vice president as well as a design principal at KG&D Architects in Mount Kisco, N.Y. He leads a team that has designed award-winning projects, such as the Seven Bridges Middle School in Chappaqua. He graduated from Cornell University.
Kaeyer says his role as an architect fits well with his new position. “My professional focus is on the buildings and campuses that strengthen the communities in which we live and work,” he said, adding the boys and girls club is “similarly aligned, focusing on developing children into confident, passionate participators in the same communities.”
Kaeyer designed the Kids Café at the Boys & Girls Club. According to the press release, he is especially proud of his involvement with the project.
“Since the café opened in 2008, it has provided over a half-million meals, many of which have been served to children who would otherwise have limited access to a nutritious dinner,” he said.
Of the future, Kaeyer said he is “excited at the prospect of collaborating with local and regional leadership and other organizations to create meaningful partnerships that collectively share in each other’s successes and ultimately make for a better environment in Northern Westchester.”
