What does a success story mean to you? At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County we believe a success story is when life changing work takes place and gives Martin County youth the hope and opportunity to grow. We'd like to share some of these success stories with you so you can see the influence that your support has on our local community.
Member Name: Samantha McBride
Age Group: Cadets (ages 6-9)
Attends the Club: Five times a week
Stuart's success story is Samantha McBride. Samantha has been coming to the Stuart Club since the beginning of 2017. When she began, she was somewhat shy and reserved. BUT now, she is a social butterfly with many friends. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and is such a beautiful child.
Each day she leaves our clubs, her dad or mom has to wait until she hugs all of the staff.
I think staff played a role in her coming out of her shell by simply showing her love and kindness. We have helped her become a leader in our club. She is never ready to leave and told her mom, “I love it here!” She brightens up the club every single day.
Final note, she ran a successful campaign and was voted as the Torch Club President and successfully lead the Torch Club in their first fundraiser, Boo Grams for Halloween.
The Boys & Girls Club of Martin County is celebrating its 26th year of “building great futures” in Martin County, enabling youth and teens to reach their full potential by staying on track to graduate, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and practicing healthy lifestyles. All donations are vital investments in the lives and the futures of our children.
