For Club members at Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club being named Youth of the Month is a high honor. Every month a youth is recognized for modeling their leadership abilities.
For the month of August, PNBGC named Ja’Mia Gresham as Youth of the Month.
“Ja’Mia Gresham has always been a well-behaved Club member. She was exceptionally shy at the Club in the beginning,” Diedra Richbow, PNBGC Program Coordinator shared. “Ja’Mia has grown into a very active Club member who participates in cheerleading and dance. She really brings joy to the Club with her positive attitude and smile.”
“A highlight for me has been watching her step outside of her shell to become a leader within her cheerleading class,” Richbow added.
Ja’Mia shared that her favorite program was participating in Cheerleading this summer.
“I enjoy coming to the Club because I get help with my homework, play with friends and learn new skills like cheerleading,” she shared.
For Diedra, watching Ja’Mia bollosom into the leader she is reminds her of the purpose of the Club.
