Mrs. Kawanna Horton (left) has served as Unit Director at the Grenada since 2016.  Since that time, 1,000+ of Holmes County youth have been Members of the Lexington Club and benefited from the support and mentorship provided by Kawanna and her youth development staff which includes Program Coordinator, Cristy Teague (right), and Program Assistants, Frances Hodges, Helen Teague, and Christopher Horton.  As an educator in the Lexington Schools, Mrs. Horton has a unique relationship that helps to ensure an open and productive relationship with school administrators.
The Lexington Club is a wonderful example of a Club operating in "the Boys & Girls Clubs' Way".  Club members participate in the 5 Core Program Areas, beginning each day by reciting the BGCA Code in Assembly, and moving into Snacks and Power Hour before breaking off into various SMART Kids Programs, Money Matters, Power Hour, TriplePlay, TorchClub, ClubTech, Youth of the Month, Passport to Manhood, Career Launch, STEM DIY, and other programs like Cal Ripken's Badges for Baseball, our new partnership with Special Olympics Mississippi, Community Service Projects, visual and music arts. Mrs. Horton and her staff go above and beyond during their "off" time, spending extra time with Club members, taking them to film trips, SEC football games, having cook outs and movie nights.  This extra attention shows!!  The Lexington has produced the BGCMSD's Youth of the Year candidate for the last few years.  One of these candidates has been selected as the Mississippi Youth of the Year!!! 
The list of programs offered is long and varied.  Attention is paid to the age/gender appropriateness of the participants.  Mrs. Horton and her staff also pay attention to the needs and interests of each Club member and work diligently to develop a healthy and dependable relationship with each Member and their family members.  This type of engagement helps ensure that our Members know they can rely upon and trust our staff and our staff knows our Members and their families and have an open line of communication.
