Kevin Dennis from the Columbus Air Force Base has volunteered with the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus’ fourth and fifth grade members, tutoring them during homework and playing basketball with them in the gym. Kevin has given many members the one-on-one attention they need, and has been a great role model that we are proud to have influence our kids. He is from Auburn, Alabama and a graduate of Auburn University. Since he will be starting his training soon, we are sad to see him go, but we have seen our members truly impacted for good by Kevin. We are grateful for his commitment to our Club, and for the time we had with him.
Please feel free to commend any exceptional volunteers by emailing email@example.com.
