Nonprofit Exec Resigns Following 'Bad Decision'

Posted: Updated:

The executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Muncie has resigned. While specific details were not disclosed, Micah Maxwell said on his personal blog he made a "bad decision" that was brought to the attention of the organization's leadership.

Maxwell joined the Boys & Girls Club of Muncie in July 2013. He is currently a member of the Indiana National Guard and previously served as deputy political director for Mitch Daniels' gubernatorial re-election campaign in 2008.

"Boys & Girls Club requires a leader of high-integrity and moral character," said Maxwell. "I violated that standard and as a result it is best for the Club and those it serves for me to resign. I want to make it clear that my actions did not include minors."

The Boys & Girls Club issued a press release saying a search for Maxwell's successor will begin immediately and the organization's programs and services will continue as scheduled.

"We have served the community for almost 80 years. During that time the health, character and academics of our Club members has been our priority. These remain our priorities," said Juli Metzger, board president for the Boys & Girls Club of Muncie.

Maxwell was recently named to the transition team for Superintendent of Public Instruction-elect Jennifer McCormick.
