Celebrating our Youth
Walton County Boys & Girls Club celebrates its members and their accomplishments. This month the Club is Youth of the Month Makai Robinson.
Makai has been a member of the Club ever since he was 6 years old.
“He always wants to you to know that he is special, and he proves it by being one of the first to want to read aloud his books in the Learning Center, as well excelling in all of the physical activities held in the gym,” WCBGC Director, Lynn E. Hill, shared. “His smile is always captivating, and his manners always captures your attention.”
Being named Youth of the Month is a credit to the youth’s character and shown leadership abilities within the Club.
“My Walton Club helps me excel in my homework, especially when I don’t understand the material. Everyone here cares about my wellbeing and I have fun here,” Makai shared.
For one volunteer Makai helped showcase you can make a difference in a child’s life.
“As a volunteer of the Club, I found myself nervous as to whether I could make a difference in their lives with the activities that I would engage the Members in. Makai would confirm my success with them. He would always come back to me and tell me what he thought of my activity that I shared with them,” Sherrie Blare shared. “Whenever we have art projects to do in the Art Room he not only cleans up his work afterwards, but he helps other members clean up and that is something rare and unique. Makai is a very smart kid, with a great future ahead of him.”
Makai’s character sparks joy for Club staff and reminds them why they’re work matters every day he enters the Club.
“There is a uniqueness about this young individual that I haven’t seen in a long time, as I have worked with youth at the Boys & Girls Club,” Hill shared. “I find him very encouraging and an inspiration to myself personally and our Club members.”
