Favorite Boys & Girls Club Program: Power Hour

Joined the Movement: March 2011

Personal Goal this Year: Enjoy the old and new friendships I’m fortunate to have as well as the family I’ve been blessed with.

Coolest thing I’ve witnessed since starting: I love seeing the impact our Clubs and staff have on kids! In many cases that impact has translated to employment with a Club where these former Club kids are now mentoring a new generation.
