The Boys and Girls club was originally called the Boys Club. Why? Well there was a group of boy who would go and destroy things so a group of nuns came together and said there should be a club for the boys so that they stay out of trouble. Then later on, about 20 years later, they let girls go too and that is when it turned into the Boys and Girls Club. My partner, Cierra, and I went to interview Zach Hunter and Hali Strack. Zach is the unit director and Hali is the program manager. We asked them why there is a club at Lockwood, and they said that it gave kids a fun place after school. We asked why they wanted to work here and they said they love to work with kid and to better the kids and yes, they do enjoy their time there. Zach has worked for the Club for ten years (WOW) and Hali for two. We asked them a tricky question too--who is your favorite staff member? Zach said beth and Hali said she did not have one. WHy did you chooses to work here Zach said that he wanted to help lockwood Hali said she had no choice but she's glad she came she loves it here. We both really enjoyed getting to know Zach and Hali. Their love for their job is contagious.
