Meet our Board Chair: Lyle Leavitt

Lyle, Senior Vice President, Reporting and Analytics Manager at New York Community Bank was elected Chair of the Board of Directors in August of 2018 and has served on the Board of Directors since December of 2013.  Lyle has worked at Ohio Savings/NYCB for 14 years and holds a B.A. in Theology from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.  While taking a lunchtime walk around downtown in 2011, Lyle came across a window display advertising for America SCORES Cleveland.  After a quick call to the SCORES office,  Lyle volunteered as a referee for a few events and then eventually entered Ohio Savings/NYCB into the SCORES Cup tournament in the spring of 2012.  Even though they didn’t win a game that first tournament, NYCB/Ohio Savings has played every year since.

Growing up playing sports, soccer specifically, was a key component for Lyle learning determination, discipline, and teamwork.  Lyle has always had a passion for making those resources and opportunities available for all kids.  And while the initial draw to America SCORES Cleveland was soccer, after attending his first Poetry Slam in 2013, Lyle realized that SCORES does more than just promote soccer and physical activity – the energy the students bring to their poetry provides a positive outlet for their voices to be heard.
