Alumni Hall of Fame

In 2016, the Boys & Girls Club will be celebrating its 45th birthday. In 2011 when the Club was Celebrating 40 years, throughout the process of researching as well as reviewing documents and pictures in honor of the celebration, the Club recognized the importance of remembering our history and those who have and continue to play an important role in our journey. A committee was established and discussion to recognize those individuals who exemplify the Club’s mission and whose importance was and is vital to the Club’s legacy. It was agreed to create a Hall of Fame format where staff, alumni, volunteers and community partners, including board members, could be recognized and memorialized for their role in our Club’s success. All previous Alumni of the Year honorees were inducted into the inaugural Hall of Fame celebration.
