Tamala served on the Board of Directors at BGCC for 17 years, providing strategic guidance as the organization expanded to serve many thousands more children in the Carson and South Los Angeles communities. Throughout this time, she has mentored Club youth, coordinated donations of sports equipment on behalf of the Los Angeles Galaxy, hosted youth soccer clinics with professional athletes, and more. She has been a terrific cheerleader as the Club navigates through the COVID-19 pandemic, and has provided guidance to staff at all levels in a commitment to eliminate racial inequities for Club kids.
In addition to her involvement with BGCC, Tamala serves on several other community and non-profit boards in Carson and surrounding communities. Tamala is the wife of 4X Olympic Track and Field Medalist, Steve Lewis, and a mother of two daughters.

CORPORATE CHAMPION FOR YOUTH
Norm Wilson & Sons, Inc. is a family-owned and operated general contracting firm whose roots lie deep in Southern California. Three generations of Wilsons have been significantly involved in the local building community, bringing together over seventy years of construction experience. This proven experience, along with still-fresh enthusiasm, creates a winning combination that sets the pace for all of their construction projects.
Over the years, employees have volunteered countless hours of service to Club programs, including supporting our Safety Committee, ensuring BGCC facilities are safe and fun places for kids to learn and grow. Recently, the team generously donated over $25,000 in repairs and maintenance work which allowed BGCC to re-open the Main Street clubhouse this past summer in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines.
