|Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Tennessee announced that Vencent Bell, who was hired as chief professional officer for the organization in early 2012 and came on board locally in May of that year, will not have his contract renewed. |
“For the benefit of the club, the board decided we needed to go in a different direction,” said chief volunteer officer Portis Tanner. “At this time, longtime unit director Tracy Boucher and the Boys & Girls Club staff in Union City will continue the club’s mission and will do a wonderful job serving the youth of this community.”
The local Boys & Girls Club opened its door in the fall of 2004 at the former Miles School building on East College Street and has continued to serve children and youth in after-school and summer programs since that time.
Currently the staff works with more than 485 children from the community on an annual basis and oversees programs for an average daily attendance of 123.
