Director named for new Clear Lake wellness center
CLEAR LAKE — The first director of Clear Lake’s new wellness center has been announced.
Adam Long is currently the head strength and conditioning coach at Liberty Hospital Sports Medicine in Liberty Missouri. He was recently selected by the center’s five-member governing board after an extensive search and interview process and was introduced to the City Council last night.
Long will lead and manage all facets of the $10.6 million wellness center, which is a collaborative effort between the city and the Clear Lake Community School District.
City Administrator Scott Flory says he was convinced Long, who has nearly 20 years of health and wellness experience, was the right choice for the position because of his cultural fit for the job and his understanding of the interrelationships with the community and the school district.
Long was among 15 candidates who applied for the position, six semi-finalists who interviewed with the wellness center board via Zoom, and two finalists who visited Clear Lake in May.
Long’s first day working for the wellness center is scheduled to be June 21st.
