Former Hinesville Mayor Allen Brown has been selected to serve as the 2015 Liberty County finance chairman 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 sixth-through 12th-grade students statewide.
Liberty County has “Y” clubs at Snelson Golden and Lewis Frasier middle schools and First Presbyterian Christian Academy. The YMCA of Coastal Georgia is working to get clubs started at other schools in the county, and all funds raised during the drive will go toward that effort.
“Y” Club members conduct monthly school and community-service projects and participate in a variety of conferences geared toward government education and Christian character.
