The Boys and Girls Club of Morgan County has been a blessing for Mooresville Schools and Newby Memorial Elementary School. Three years ago, the director to write a 21st Century Scholars Grant approached me. This grant would provide free before and after school care, at Newby Memorial, for close to 80 of our students. In my mind, I thought this would be a blessing for our parents, knowing that they would not need to worry about the money to pay for childcare, but also know that they are safe. However, working with the Boys and Girls Club has exceeded my expectations and goals.

I am very grateful every day for the staff, volunteers, donations and activities, and wonderful care that our students receive. The staff is truly dedicated to raising leaders in our community, and giving them experiences they may not receive at school or at home. I see students involved in compassion projects, showing empathy towards others, and giving back to those around us. The staff models to our students what a servant leader is, which I believe is very important in our society.

The staff truly exemplifies best practice instruction within a fun and hands-on setting. Each staff member strives to reach and motivate ALL of the students through creative homework practice and strategies, and community projects. Their focus is on the whole-child to make sure they are excelling in all areas.

I am in awe of the resiliency of the Morgan County Boys and Girls Club staff and board volunteers. Newby Memorial has forever changed, due to this partnership. It is my hope, that it will be a partnership we sustain for many years.   In my 15 years working with various Boys and Girls Clubs across central and southern Indiana, the staff, kids and families at The Boys and Girls Club of Morgan County have reminded me every day that, with a little compassion and caring, we can create a future filled with hope and meaning.

Thank you for supporting our Kids, Our Future
