Community member Raquel Cobb wants to make a difference in Greene County. It’s important to her to give back to the community that raised her. She’ll be joining the Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club to do just that – giving back to the future of Greene County.
“I want to be active in the community that provided so much to me when I was a student in the Greene County School System,” Cobb shared. “By being on the Club board for the Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club, I’m helping the Club continue to provide more students the opportunities and experiences I received in school that helped to lay the foundation for me.”
When looking for opportunities to give back toward, it wasn’t hard for Cobb to establish that PNBGC indeed plays a vital role in the youth of Greene County.
“I believe the PNBGC provides a safe and productive place for our youth and molds them to become better students and ultimately responsible adults. Hopefully, after graduation, these students will return to the community to sustain and influence Greene County in a positive way,” she shared.
Stacy McClendon, PNBGC Club Director, shared his excitement for Cobb.
“I am very excited about the great possibilities and potential that Raquel Cobb will bring to our Club board,” he said. “She will bring great enthusiasm and poise to her position. I am looking forward to working closely with Raquel, as we continue the work of helping our youth here in Greensboro reach their full potential as productive and caring citizens.”
As for Cobb, she can’t wait to interact with Club youth.
“I am most looking forward to interacting with the Club members and sharing any opportunities that will prepare them academically or socially.”
