White Center CDA's Mikel Davila departing: Effective March 1, he's going back to the Bay Area
Mikel Davila Neighborhood Revitalization Program Manager at the White Center Community Development Association has announced he is leaving the community organization March 1. He shared a letter explaining his move with the media and the community.
"Dear friends, mentors and colleagues,
I’m writing to announce my departure from the White Center Community Development Association as of March 1st and the Pacific Northwest as of April 1st. I will be moving back to my hometown in the Bay Area – closer to family - where I am excited to continue working for local economic growth with sustainable businesses.
It has been an incredible experience to work alongside you and learn from you during the past year. In that time, we’ve made a positive impact in White Center together developing authentic leaders and I feel confident that I’m leaving a strong tight-knit community that will continue to strive for equity.
Thank you for the support, partnership, and fun you have provided me during my time working with you in the community. Though I will miss working with you for now, I look forward to crossing paths in the future.
I wish you the best. Please feel free to contact me at my CDA email until March 1st and via my LinkedIn page listed below to keep in touch.
Thank you for all the work you do to support White Center.
Davila said a job announcement for his replacement would be posted on the WCCDA website next week.
