EMAN Board President Aisha Brooks-Lytle resigns

Rev. Aisha Brooks-Lytle recently stepped down from her role as board president of East Mt. Airy Neighbors (EMAN).

Brooks-Lytle made the announcement at the civic’s March board meeting, saying that the demands of caring for an ill husband and her six-year-old son have made attending the organization’s evening meetings and events less feasible for now.

“Because of the demands of my family, and just re-orienting how we do life, I need to step down as president,” Brooks-Lytle told the board on March 6.

Brooks-Lytle is also the pastor at Mt. Airy Presbyterian Church.

The EMAN board fully supported the decision and voted to make Vice President Ken Reichert the board’s new president as per Brooks-Lytle’s request. Brooks-Lytle will assume Reichert’s former role.

“I think we have to fully appreciate what you are willing to do with the utmost understanding of what you’re going through,” said board member David Bell.

“Thank you very much for manning the helm and keeping us on track,” said board member and past president Dan Muroff.
