ALUMNI SUCCESS STORIES
Years in Program
Currently employed as a 6th Grade Math Teacher at Sutton Middle School Sixth Grade Campus
How has being a part of Bankhead Boys Association helped you? I loved it. It gave me structure. It gave me something to do with my time, instead of just being idle at home. I still use a lot of the stuff that I learned during my time with BBA today.
What is the most important thing you learned while you were at a part of the Bankhead Boys Association? The Boy Scout’s Law was the most important thing that I learned, while being a part of the Bankhead Boys Association. If I operate using the law, I don’t feel bad about anything that happens.
What's your favorite memory during your time? Going to Daytona Beach during Spring Break. We would always stay at a house that had an orange grove, and we would pick oranges. Every time we went, it was also cheer season, so there would be a lot of cheerleaders in town also.
Why is Bankhead Boys Association important to current youth in Atlanta? Youth today don’t have any programs. I think that if we didn’t have Bankhead Boys Association, we would be doing different things. They need the same opportunity that we had.
