It is my honor to be named Indiana Boys & Girls Clubs' Most Valuable Professional. Throughout my 16 year career, there have been many highs and a few lows, but one thing has remained the same: Children need Boys & Girls Clubs. No matter their social or economic status, children need a safe and fun place to learn and grow. Boys & Girls Clubs provide that place and so much more. Team members work hard to create an environment of hope and opportunity for all of our children. I'm indeed blessed to be on this journey and making an impact on the community I love through Boys & Girls Club. - Mandy
