Newth Morris, the new executive director of the Severna Park Community Center (SPCC), said he plans to keep up the momentum that's been building around the center and increase offerings as needed, according to a statement from the organization.

Morris was appointed the executive director earlier this month by the board of directors of SPCC, a grant- and citizen-funded organization whose vision is "a healthy, vibrant, connected Severna Park community," the statement said.

"I am very excited to bring my business and volunteer experience to SPCC to continue to grow the already excellent program,” Morris said.

According to the statement, Morris chairs the Olde Severna Park Improvement Association, used to own Dixie Packaging and Printing, and contributed to the development of the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail in 1977.

In his new position, Morris will be responsible for fundraising, strategic planning, operations and communications for the center.

“Newth Morris is one of the most dynamic, hard-working members of the community that I know, and he displays the kind of leadership skills, business acumen, and understanding of community needs that are going to be critical to the long-term success of SPCC," Meg Anderson, chair of the SPCC board of directors, said in the statement.

In the last two years, SPCC has expanded its offerings to include The Dance Center of Severna Park and a fitness center. Morris will build on these programs and evaluate whether there's a need for additional services too, the statement said.
