ASK THE EXPERTS

Bearden named YMCA state finance chairman

POSTED: May 25, 2011 4:00 a.m.

Clint Bearden has been selected to serve as the 2011 chairman of the Dawson County/Dawsonville finance drive for the State YMCA of Georgia.

The finance drive is currently underway to support the State YMCA program in middle and high schools in Georgia through Hi-Y, Tri-Hi-Y and Co-ed "Y" clubs.

"Y" clubs are leadership development, service-oriented faith-based school clubs for sixth through twelfth grade students statewide. These "Y" club members learn by doing.

The club conducts monthly school and community service projects and participates in a variety of conferences geared toward government education and Christian character.

In Dawson County, active "Y" clubs can be found at Dawson County High School, Dawson County Middle School and Riverview Middle School.

The State YMCA of Georgia, Inc. was chartered in 1929 to develop leadership skills and a sense of moral and civic responsibility in middle school and high school students throughout the state.

Youth-in-Government programs, leadership training and character education initiatives based on Christian principles are offered at the district and statewide levels to complement the work of service-oriented, school-based "Y" clubs.

For more information, visit www.yclub.org or call (770) 455-9622.
