City operation of HFV Wilson transfers to board of trustees

The HFV Wilson Community Center has hosted decades of sports, summer camps, elections, public forums and many other events that have helped shape generations of Ardmore residents and southern Oklahoma. A major change behind the scenes will go into effect next week but officials say day-to-day operations at the center should remain the same. 

“I don’t think it’s going to change that much. JaMia Cody is our program director and she has been the heartbeat of this things for years anyway,” said Steve Martin, a trustee for the recently created HFV Wilson Center Trust Authority. He and other trustees were on hand during a town hall meeting on Thursday hosted by Ward 2 Commissioner John Credle to discuss new oversight of the 81-year-old facility. 

A former advisory panel to the city has been turned into a board of trustees that will oversee operation of the community center and Cody will serve as interim director. While the city still owns the property and building and is responsible for upgrades or large mechanical systems, the trustees will be responsible for staffing, programming, maintenance and utilities.
