RESTON, VA — Reston Community Center is pleased to announce the hiring of BeBe Nguyen as its new deputy director effective January 3, 2022. She replaces former Deputy Director John Blevins, who left RCC for a position with Prince William County.
Nguyen has served as RCC Director of Communications for more than a decade and is dedicated, passionate and creative in her efforts to advance the agency’s objectives and branding. During her tenure as communications director, Nguyen has led multiple complex campaigns for RCC events, partnerships and community-wide initiatives.
“BeBe’s deep understanding and dedication to Reston’s values have positioned her for this significant leadership role at RCC,” said RCC Board Chair Bev Cosham. “The board knows BeBe’s work and commitment to equity, and we are confident she will continue to advance our strategic plan goals effectively in partnership with Executive Director Leila Gordon.”
Nguyen is currently leading the project to replace RCC’s website – an effort that will provide a comprehensive community calendar for Reston and more effective ways for the public to engage online with RCC.
“I am very excited to serve Reston in this new role.” said Nguyen. “I hope to bring the skills and experience I’ve acquired to enhance and elevate our patrons’ experience with RCC. I am grateful to have this opportunity to serve RCC and Reston as we kick off our first year of RCC’s new Strategic Plan.”
RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon notes that “BeBe will help RCC integrate our planning and administrative functions as well as continue to provide creative responses to community challenges that align with RCC’s mission. I’m looking forward to working together as Reston and RCC grow in the years ahead.”
Nguyen, who holds a Master of Public Administration degree from George Mason University, is currently serving among Fairfax County’s One Fairfax Equity Ambassador Corps and is RCC’s Equity Lead to implement the One Fairfax policy. This countywide social and racial policy commits Fairfax County government agencies and schools to intentionally consider equity when making policies or delivering programs and services. She will continue in this role in her new position.
