Staff Spotlight: Rocky LaPlante

June 21, 2019

Rocky LaPlante is new to the Green Hills Family YMCA, but he is no stranger to the YMCA. The former Ironman Triathlon participant says, “My journey with the YMCA began one Christmas when my in-laws got my family a membership. My kids loved it and were active on the swim team. We were members for 18 years.”

Later, Rocky spent 24 years with the Y in Wisconsin. Starting as an early morning part-time lifeguard, Rocky was eventually convinced to assume the role of Aquatics Director, and from there he moved into Operations.

After a brief move to Arizona, he and his wife moved to Nashville five months ago, and recently he was reconnected to his Y roots.

Rocky explains, “My daughter and son-in-law are regular volunteers at the Green Hills Y. They told Laurel Wilson about me, and she reached out about the Active Older Adults (AOA) Coordinator position.”

Now, he is one month into his new role. Having missed the family atmosphere and the closeness that the members and staff shared together, Rocky says, “This was the perfect opportunity for me. It's one big family!”

Rocky’s hobbies include horticulture/gardening and decorating for the holidays. He freely admits, “I have 78 totes of Christmas decorations… and 40 totes for Halloween, all meticulously labeled. Members can certainly look forward to a festive lobby during this fall and winter!”

And we’re looking forward to all that Rocky brings to the Green Hills family.  Learn about everything Rocky has planned for our AOA members in July by downloading our calendar.
