HOW HAS BEING A MEMBER OF THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUB IMPACTED YOUR LIFE?
The Herbert Hoover Boys’ Club impacted my life in so many ways. First and foremost it taught me how to be a team player in life. My three mentors at HHBC were Clarence Pearson, Cicero Clark, and Garland Goodwin. All three taught me how to compete and never quit until you complete your goal and win. They taught me that school was more important than sports. It taught me how to follow rules and leadership, honesty, integrity, and to grow my faith in God. The Herbert Hoover Boys’ Club kept me off the streets in my teen years while some of my friends got caught up with drugs and the law. It taught me to set my goals high and get a college education to be an asset to this society.
