Annual Meeting coming up June 17th, Celebrate our new Executive Director!

Southside Community Center Board of Directors is pleased to announce Chavon Bunch as the Executive Director of Southside Community Center.

Mrs. Chavon Bunch is a calming homegrown force of wisdom! Her dynamic leadership and advocacy ignites great excitement and stability for our staff, board members, volunteers, program participants, and beyond!

Graciously accepting the invitation to serve in an interim leadership capacity throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Mrs. Chavon Bunch helped lead a team of staff and volunteers engaged in on-going development, programming, events, and community use of the building.  She proved herself as interim and we are excited to name her as Southside’s Executive Director to help carry the organization forward.  

About Chavon Bunch

Chavon Bunch was born and raised in Ithaca. She is the daughter of Marcia Baum, granddaughter of Dr. Donald and Jennie Graham, all whom have respectfully served the Ithaca community for almost 50 years. Chavon grew up attending Southside for Girl Scout meetings and remembers the fun times “hanging out” with other girls that looked just like her. Now she lives in the neighborhood with her husband Antwan and two beautiful kids Ayani and Kincade. Ayani attends Southside for the Afterschool program, CUMEP, and UNITED Dance Troupe. Chavon is fully committed to Southside Community Center and its mission, while continuing the family tradition of community service. Look out for her and the family strolling the neighborhood, playing in the yard, or chatting with the many people that pass by their family home. Do not hesitate to stop and say “Hello!”
