Julie Hammons
YEA Executive Director

New YEA Leadership

Beginning July 1, 2019

The Youth Endowment for Activities Foundation (YEA), has entered into a Contract for Administrative Services with the Idaho High School Activities Association (IHSAA). Beginning July 1, 2019, the IHSAA will provide all administrative duties for the YEA. The YEA Board of Control will still be separate from the IHSAA and will continue to maintain control of all financial, policy, practices and legal matters. The IHSAA will provide the role of Executive Director, who will work with the YEA Board of Control. This change has come about because of the pending retirement of the current YEA Executive Director, Dick Curtis, which will be effective June 30th, 2019. Mr. Curtis has been the YEA Executive Director since 2008, and the IHSAA Assistant Director, Julie Hammons, will perform the duties of the YEA Executive Director, in addition to her regular duties with the IHSAA.
