Meet Our Staff
We have an experienced staff that genuinely cares about each and every child at our ACES After School Programs.
Cathy Hay, Executive Director
Cathy Hay has been teaching kids for over 30 years. In 1994 she began her own gymnastics program and conducted four different programs in Bigfork, Kalispell, Whitefish and Columbia Falls. In 2007 the first afterschool program in Bigfork began under her direction. Today ACES has five programs throughout the valley all partially funded by the 21st Century Community Learning Center grant. Cathy has two grown children and is married to her biggest supporter, Jon!
- Rachel has been with ACES for the last 2 summers and is a senior and Bigfork High School. This is her first year for working afterschool for ACES. She is helping your Kindergarten and 1st graders earn their badges!
Jesse is one of our High School Students that is new to our team this year. She has been working with children at Big Sky Bible Camp and at the Summit in Kalispell. She came to ACES because she loves interacting with children and guiding them along the way.
