Celebrating our Youth
Walton County Boys & Girls Clubcelebrates its members and their accomplishments. This month the Club is Teen member of the Month Christopher Day.
Day has been a member of the Club for one year and is a teen member of the Club.
“It makes me happy to know that my mom is proud of the things that I am learning and doing at the Boys & Girls Club,” Day shared. “I really enjoy meeting new people through the Boys & Girls Club, like the Belles & Bowties Fundraiser I recently attended.”
Day was selected for his ability to lead his peers in activities, willingness to try new things and excelling in implementation of the BGC way.
For Christopher his favorite program at the Club is Passport to Manhood where he learns how to dress for success, etiquette techniques and the importance of pursuing your education.
Christopher is a member of the Keystone Club, Passport to Manhood and the Basketball Team.
“There is a uniqueness about this young individual that I have grown to love about Christopher,” Lynn E. Hill, WCGGC Director shared. “His mother moved her family to Georgia about 2 years ago and she was very concerned about his surroundings and the kids he would be vulnerable to. I assured her that there was something about “C.J.” that would cause him to rise above his environment and excel as a notable youth in our community.”
Mr. Hill believes, Christopher has done more than excel.
“His mother is so happy that Chris has a place to develop and mature. His style of dress has changed. He works on his language and speech,” he shared. “Surely, he is moving to the top of his class in school. He has taken advantage of the Boys & Girls Club experience.”
