Meroe Williams is our new Hollingers’ Island BGC Branch Director and a former Club kid!
We are happy to have her as a part of our BGCSA team! Meroe grew up in the Wake Forest Boys & Girls Club in Wake Forest, North Carolina. She really enjoyed being active in her Club, she especially loved playing dodgeball and running track with her team.
Today, Meroe is a Coast Guard wife with two dogs, and she loves to be outside and physically active. She is competitive, hard-working, and always ready to try a new restaurant. Lastly, she is passionate about saving our planet, and she stays conscious of her actions to be more sustainable/eco-friendly.
Over the years, the Boys & Girls Club taught Meroe many great lessons, including that “you should try everything once, because if you don’t, you could be cheating yourself out of something great.”
Gerald “Gee” Archard is one of our Boys & Girls Clubs of South Alabama alumni! This summer, he worked as a program assistant at our Hollinger’s Island 21st Century Club.
Gee grew up at the Kiwanis Boys & Girls Club and is a lifelong Club member. He returned to our organization this summer to gain experience in his field of study and to be a positive influence on youth in our community.
We would like to send a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Gee for being selected a master’s candidate! We are proud of you and all that you have and will accomplish.
