                                          "Distinguished Gentleman's Club" Kickoff

On Friday, November 22nd, the “Distinguished Gentlemen's Club" had their first meeting!  Mr. Wilson met with all 5th grade boys in the gym.  We were fortunate enough to have a Professional Football Player from the Seattle Seahawk's for our first meeting.  Michael Brooks, number 70 for the Seahawks, was our Guest Speaker!

Mr. Brooks talked about academics and goal setting.  The young men were able to ask him questions at the end of the presentation.  Pictures and autographs were taken and given to our young men.

The Distinguished Gentlemen's Club's purpose is for our young men to:

  • interact with positive role models,
  • develop high self-esteem,
  • and understand the importance of manhood, loyalty, responsibility, and education.

Our mission is to:

  • increase academic performance,
  • build character,
  • and provide a mentoring program.

Our mottos are:

  • "Nothing in life is free,"
  • and "The only thing you have complete control over is your mind."
