The Graduating Class of 2022

Everywhere you look, students are preparing and practicing in anticipation. Reservations are being made, gifts are being purchased, and caps are getting decorated. Graduation month is here. In the following weeks students will learn to walk in a line much like they did when they were in Elementary School, only this time they walk towards the end of an era. 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Georgia have pride in the fact that our Club members hold a 100% graduation rate. Every year we welcome new members into our society and while their departure may play at our heartstrings, we know we have prepared them for this world. Our Club staff gave them the best guidance and wisdom, our Club members gave them friendship and perspective, and our Club walls gave them a community, opportunities, and a safe place to call home. This year we are proud to recognize 5 outstanding graduates, congratulations to the Class of 2022!
