Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana CEO Shares Her Vision

Putting Kids on Solid Ground

For Rhyan Shea Wheeler, job satisfaction has everything to do with the happiness and promising futures of children. A good day for the newly appointed CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana is one filled with smiling faces on the students who come through the Clubs’ doors from 3-7 p.m.

Her new role marks a dream come true for the New Iberia native, who has wanted to help those more vulnerable community members – particularly children – since an early age. She has made great strides to reach a position of increased influence to do just that. In her three-year employment at Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana, she has risen from director of resource development in 2018 to its vice president earlier this year, and in September became CEO.
