Boys and Girls Club Awards Scooter to Brandon McMillan
Brandon McMillan, a rising senior at Pinecrest High School, has been awarded a 2007 Yamaha scooter for earning the "Most Improved" teen award at the Boys and Girls Club of the Sandhills. The scooter was donated in February by club supporter, Bob Baillie, to reward the club member who worked consistently to improve himself, "never settling for less than his best."
"I can't believe this," McMillan said, as he received his prize from Baillie. McMillan, who is now 17, has been a club member since he was six years old and follows a family tradition of achievement in the Boys and Girls Club. His brother, Darren McMillan, previously won a scholarship to college from the club and has since received his degree.
The award is one of many ways the Boys and Girls Club of the Sandhills fosters its mission, to enable young people to become responsible, productive citizens and to assure that every young person has the resources needed to succeed.
McMillan is one of over 300 Moore County youth members of the club at its two locations: 160 Memorial Park Court adjacent to the Southern Pines Parks & Recreation Center and Aberdeen Elementary School. Both club locations provide after-school programs. A summer program is also provided at the Southern Pines site.
