Director Q & A
Q & A with the Executive Director – Terry Walker-Moore
I love working with kids and teens and helping them become great leaders.
My mother was the person who influenced my life as a kid. She was a single mother who wore many hats. She impacted many lives throughout our community volunteering for our church, school, and civic organizations.
Without faith, it is impossible.
The Club is making a positive impact in our community because of the relationships we build here. It start with “US”. Unity of the people will change lives.
This is the only Club within Rockdale County and it’s a place that is vital to the community.
