Deputy Director

The Y in Central Maryland Baltimore County Head Start

The Y in Central Maryland’s Kisha McCray, deputy director of the organization, believes inspiring change is critical to community involvement.

“I have excelled within my organization because I go above and beyond to show compassion for children and families, to engage community members and to model my love for impact and change to the next generation,” she wrote.

McCray, who has recently been asked to be the Maryland Health Manager Network coordinator for the state, has worked in Head Start programs in three states. In Baltimore, McCray worked as director of early childhood development and health services and health and nutrition coordinator before assuming her current role.

She is a 2019 graduate of Leadership Baltimore County and serves as co-chair of the Baltimore County Tobacco Coalition, coordinator of Maryland Health Managers Network for Maryland Head Start Association and as a member on the Y Head Start Advisory Board. She also volunteers with Black Girls Vote.

McCray, who holds a bachelor’s degree from Coppin State University and a master’s degree in human services administration from Capella University, is working on a master’s degree in social work.
