Nashville, Tenn. (April 24, 2017) - Rocketown, a faith-based youth outreach facility located in the heart of downtown Nashville, has announced Kenny Alonzo as their new Executive Director. With two decades of experience in serving the Nashville community through non-profit organizations, Alonzo will join the tenured programs and services Rocketown continues to provide to the youth of Nashville.

"We are so very grateful and excited that Kenny Alonzo is joining the Rocketown team as our new Executive Director," shares Rocketown Founder and GRAMMY® winner Michael W. Smith. "Kenny’s love and passion for youth, in particular disadvantaged youth, and ministry is contagious. I fully believe that Rocketown’s best days are ahead and Kenny is the perfect leader to guide our staff and young people in the right direction”.  

Alonzo has served for the last twelve years with the YMCA of Middle Tennessee Association in various positions with the most recent being the Executive Director of their downtown location. He has over 20 years experience in the nonprofit industry holding positions in education, youth ministry, inner-city outreach, high school and college athletics, foundation work and the YMCA.

"Our Board set a high bar, seeking a proven CEO who is a minister at heart," adds Kent Wood, Rocketown Board Chair. "We found that person in Kenny Alonzo, and I couldn't be more excited to have him at the helm of Rocketown."

Rocketown is well-known for their youth ministry but also arts enrichment programs, sports leagues, Nashville’s only all ages music venue, and expansive skatepark. The youth-only recording studio, improv acting classes, and music and vocal lessons are free and open to students in 5-12 grade - year round.
