Boys & Girls Clubs of the Upstate Held a ribbon cutting for its 15th club Tuesday at O.P. Earle Elementary School. Clubs at O.P. Earle in Spartanburg District 1 and Pacolet Elementary School in Spartanburg District 3 both opened at the beginning of the school year and are the first clubs in their respective school districts.
I joined my Boys and Girls Club the summer after my fifth-grade year at Pine Street Elementary School. Back then, I was a troubled child and a class clown. Teachers couldn't understand how I always quickly finished my work yet was unable to sit still.
