Rashard

Rashard is a member of the Joseph B. Whitehead Club.  His favorite club activity is volunteering through the Keystone program; when he grows up he wants to be a radiation oncologist.  He says that BGCMA has helped him become a better individual, taught him to be more humble and calm, and how to adapt to a variety of different situations.  For him, the best part of BGCMA is that it is a safe haven – offering children a place to go have fun and learn after school.
