In 1980, devoted board members in South Cobb County successfully re-opened the South Cobb Boys and Girls Club as an official branch of Boys Clubs of Metro Atlanta. In 1989, the Club was renamed the A.W. "Tony" Matthews Boys Club in honor of Mr. Matthews' dedicated and devoted service to the boys of South Cobb. In March 1998, the Club and its services were extended to the girls of South Cobb and became A.W. "Tony" Matthews Boys & Girls Club.
