Meet & Greet
We would like to thank everyone who came out to our Meet & Greet in support of Yards for Success (YFS). As the fire trucks pulled into the parking lot, the room began to fill up with excited volunteers and participants. While there everyone had the opportunity to sign up for the days the wanted to participate, meet the coaches, and meet a few of the student participants and the other volunteers. In addition, everyone had the opportunity to collect various items like water bottles, t-shirts, bracelets, sun glasses, lip balm from SAFE and our corporate sponsors SECU, and the Barcelona Nut Company.
After giving everyone time to mingle and enjoy the food and refreshments provided, Van Brooks gave a detailed summary of the goals, and desired outcomes for Yards for Success. He also acknowledged everyone who helped make the program come to life and allowed each of them to speak on why the decided to get involved with YFS. The speakers ranged from current Stevenson football players, Mrs. Patton the principal at Franklin Square, Lieutenant Goodwin from the fire department, Brady Smith a former teammate of Van Brooks, along with other friends who have college football experience. All and all the Meet & Greet was a success and everyone is excited for the start of YFS April 22. To see pictures CLICK HERE
