Director Q & A
Q & A with the Executive Director – Steve Hord
Simply, this is where I am meant to be. It is special to be entrusted to look out for and contribute to the growth of our young people. It is also special to be in a position where I can identify with and help build staff members who are passionate and invested in our mission.
My parents were, and still are, my heroes.
I know that we are a positive force in our community because I see our young people not only learning about good choices, but also making good choices and practicing their positive conflict resolution skills. Furthermore, we have consistently high graduation rates which are indicative of our teens’ preparedness and chance for success in their post-secondary educational pursuits.
The relationships formed and held within our Club make for a place of belonging. That is what makes our Club special.
