In an effort to promote and participate in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Fatherhood Initiative, the Hineshouse Project’s Resident Services Department recently hosted the first Father’s Day/class of 2014 breakfast in the newly renovated community center at 100 Regency Place in Hinesville.
Liston Singletary III was the guest speaker, and he talked about the importance of fathers building legacies for their children. In addition, he informed the recent high-school graduates that their work in becoming productive, successful citizens has just begun.
Hinesville Housing Authority Executive Director Debra Williams, Chairman Paul Johnson, Hinesville City Councilman Keith Jenkins and Singletary presented three Liberty County High School 2014 graduates — Niyah Metoye, Diamante Randall and Nathan Dean — with certificates and $100 each. Metoye and Dean will work as summer camp counselor at the Hineshouse’s Project Summer Learning Camp, and they will attend a youth leadership conference in Athens.
Also, Kycera Burks, a 2014 Bradwell Institute graduate, was given a gift bag.
Thirty-five community residents and visitors supported the breakfast. Attendees were served by the resident services staff.
