Meet the 

Campaign Director 

(August 2, 2019) Marion, Kentucky. – WKYC names Marion native Trisha Vaughn as its new Campaign Director. 

Vaughn’s appointment is an outgrowth of Western Kentucky Youth Camp’s (WKYC) long-range envisioning efforts. As Campaign Director, she will work with the Board of Directors to define and create the future of the camp by driving critical transformation projects and organizational branding efforts. Vaughn will also provide administrative support to the Board and Chip Palmer, who was recently appointed Caretaker.


WKYC is a second home for Vaughn, whose parents, Joan and the late David Maclin, served as caretakers of the property. She attended camp annually with her sister, Nancy Wunderlich, as both a camper and later a counselor for different summer sessions and retreats.


Vaughn most recently completed an assignment as Strategic Planning Director for Lone Oak church of Christ, and was the Campaign Relations Manager for the Cleveland Zoological Society in Cleveland, OH. Trisha earned a Master of Arts in English and graduated Summa Cum Laude with degrees in English and Political Science from the University of Louisville, where she was a McConnell Scholar for leadership. Trisha is married to Derek Vaughn, an Orthopaedic Surgery Fellow at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and a WKYC alumnus. They have one daughter, Clara Rose Vaughn.  


 “Trisha brings tremendous passion for the church and a number of professional experiences to her new role that will help position WKYC for lasting impact in the region. We are excited to have her on board and look forward to continuing what is already a long-standing relationship with the camp,” said Board President Tim Teel.
