Gregory Pope has been selected to serve as the Finance Chairman for the State YMCA of Georgia in Newton County for 2012. The Finance Drive is currently underway to support the State YMCA program in middle and high schools in Georgia through Hi-Y, Tri-Hi-Y and Co-ed "Y" Clubs.
"Y" Clubs are leadership development, service-oriented faith-based school clubs for 6th to12th-grade students statewide. These "Y" Club members learn by doing. They conduct monthly school and community service projects and participate in a variety of conferences geared towards government education and Christian character.
All donations will go to starting up "Y" Clubs in the county's Middle and High Schools.
The State YMCA of Georgia, Inc. was chartered in 1929 to develop leadership skills and a sense of moral and civic responsibility in middle and high school students. For more information on the State YMCA of Georgia, visit yclub.org or call (770) 455-9622.
