Meet Hailey, a BGCSA Club alumni and a current Police Cadet with the Mobile Police Department.
Hailey attended the Semmes Boys & Girls Club from ages 7 to 18, and she created many childhood memories at her Club. She remembers the staff being so kind, understanding, and driven to succeed! She also learned a lot from her involvement in many groups, activities, and meeting people from diverse backgrounds.
While working with the Mobile Police Department, Hailey intends to progress through the police academy to become an investigator for our community!
Hailey says, “The Boys & Girls Clubs make sure everyone is happy and having fun while also learning in a great environment. The Club has taught me that opportunity is everywhere. I was able to get experiences and opportunities that led my path into adulthood. The Boys &Girls Clubs was like a second home to me. I learned that no child is too big, and no child is too small. We all have room to grow and develop. The Club has taught me that mistakes happen, but we excel, and we learn through exposure and experience. Lastly, the Club has taught me to enjoy everything life hands to you because there should never be a dull moment when you are having fun!”
Tiffany Pogue
Tiffany Pogue served as our Club Media Specialist and Social Media Director and she is doing #WhateverItTakes for our community.
Her infectious smile and willing spirit are evident through her work at the Boys & Girls Club South Alabama. She kept the public informed of BGCSA activities through e-newsletters, social media posts, videos, and photography.
Her candid shots capture the successes of Club kids creating memories and taking their studies and confidence to greater heights by participating in programs with assistance from Club staff.
Tiffany says. “I was a member of Kiwanis Boys & Girls Club, and participating in programs such as Keystone, Torch Club, No Limits Girls Aviation, Gavel Club, and photography club changed my life. I became outgoing, determined, and community-oriented.”
That determination pushed her to graduate high school, obtain an associate’s degree from Bishop State Community College, and graduate with her Bachelor’s degree from the University of South Alabama. She’s also the owner of Creatif Shots, 2023 intern with Africatown Heritage Housse, and works for the Alabama Contemporary Arts Center.
Meet Autumn, a BGCSA Club Alumni and a current Nursing Major at the University of South Alabama.
Autumn attended our Sonny Callahan Branch from adolescence until she graduated from high school. Autumn was always a shy kid and reserved kid, but after interacting with everyone at the Club, she became much more confident in herself. During her years as a Club kid, she found a liking to helping people in whichever way she could. This has inspired her to major in Nursing so that she can be of service to people in her community. Outside of being a student, Autumn is a mentor to our Club youth at our Sonny Callahan Branch. As a program assistant, she spreads positivity through programs like Smart Girls, Power Hour, and much more.
Autumn says, “The Boys & Girls Club taught me to always be kind and helpful. You never know someone’s background or what kind of day they are having, and you could be that positivity that they need in that moment or that day. Life is too short to be spent being hostile towards each other.”
Meet William Burks IV, a BGCSA Club Alumni, a graduate of Talladega College and a graduate student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. 

William grew up in our Optimist Branch and received many different opportunities to get involved with the community, envision his future, and develop leadership skills. William says, “You are gifted so many different opportunities just by being a club member. My Boys & Girls Club had the tools to help me succeed. I learned that when I would apply myself, great things would follow. Looking back at all the positive and uplifting people and moments that I was able to experience at the Club, I am just so thankful.”

As a student at Talladega College, William employed the lessons he learned at his Club to take every opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. He achieved many outstanding accomplishments during that pivotal time in his life. William has done extensive research in biology, even being awarded the opportunity to present his research projects at a many STEM conventions and conferences across the nation! He is currently in graduate school at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Please help us congratulate William on his incredible accomplishments!
