Artist: Jess Bernhart

Jess Bernhart is an Atlanta-based artist, dabbling in painting, photography, installations, and creative writing. Jess is not a trained artist – one day she just found it sad that as kids we draw and paint and write stories all the time, and then we “grow up” and stop. So Jess started making art again. She believes that everyone is an artist, but not everyone knows it.  Jess also believes in the power of artists to change the world. Art is the best way to tell a story, to make a connection, and to represent humanity. If we ever enter utopia, we will ride in on the back of art.

Nicole T.

Nicole Thompson is the Teen Director at the Samuel L. Jones Club; she was a member of the Warren/Holyfield Club as a child.  She believes strongly that the combination of character & leadership, academic success, and social recreation that BGCMA provides is something every child should have.  She says that the best part of her job is leading by example, teaching the kids to give back to the community through activities such as volunteering at the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  To her, the BGCMA means family.
