New Director for Toombs County Boys & Girls Club
Monday, 26 August 2013

August 26--  A young man whose life was changed by a Boys and Girls Club in his home state of Alabama is taking over as the new director of the Boys and Girls Club in Toombs County.

Twenty-seven-year old Stephen Miller graduated from the University of Alabama and after a couple of years administering nursing homes returned to the organization which played such a big role in his life.

ImageStephen Miller and his fiance Ashley Shavers arrived in Vidalia Friday and were on hand for the Boys and Girls Club contemporary Christian concert Saturday night at Southeastern Tech.

"I've been involved in the Boys and Girls Club since the age of six.  It was a safe haven for me and my sisters.  I come from a background of a mother on welfare and food stamps and public assistance, so I know what a good wholesome organization can do to change lives because it saved mine.  I know all too well the struggles that some of our youth face today and now I'm in a position to offset some of those struggles," Miller says.

HIs vision for the local Boys and Girls Club is, "to really take us to the next level.  We have a great board, we have fantastic kids and fantastic facilities.  My job is to put all those moving parts together to make sure we're not only serving a large quantity of children but that we're providing quality programs."

Miller is a former Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year in the southeastern United States.  Not only did he earn a Club scholarship for college, but he visited President George W. Bush in the Oval Office.

"That's an experience I'm going to cherish for the rest of my life and now I've been given the opportunity to help other young people do that," he says.
