We happen to think we have the best staff at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. Our Youth Development Professionals put in the work on a daily basis and serve as mentors to at-risk youth in our community regularly, with little fanfare or recognition.
This week, Dwight Howard, the Charlotte Hornets and Blue Cross Blue Shield took notice of our very own Cedric Cook. They surprised him at the Dwight Howard Boys & Girls Club at Starmount Academy and awarded him courtside seats and a VIP experience at an upcoming game. Dell Curry was on hand to also offer Mr. Cook a behind the scenes tour of the Fox Sports broadcast during the VIP experience.
In his usual fashion, Mr. Cook used the opportunity to shine the light on the rest of the Boys & Girls Club staff and leadership at Starmount Academy who support him on a daily basis. The kids were so excited for Mr. Cook, and of course, loved seeing Dwight Howard, Dell Curry, Hugo and the Honeybees.
When he’s at the Club, Dwight Howard never misses an opportunity to play a few games, like Andy’s Coming and Red Light Green Light!
Thank you to the Hornets, Dwight Howard, Fox Sports Southeast, Dell Curry and Blue Cross Blue Shield. And, thank you, Mr. Cook for being a light in our community.
