Boys & Girls Club Intern Serves with a Smile

Tamiya Vanhook-Davis is the first face you will see as you enter the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Blue Ridge location on Memorial Boulevard in Martinsville. This summer, she is gaining valuable experience as she sees the behind-the-scenes work that goes on in nonprofits to deliver successful programs for area youth.

In addition to various administrative tasks, Tamiya has helped by inputting data for the Department of Social Services that is crucial for funding of the Boys & Girls Clubs. Also, she is participating in various training for the organization.

“I enjoy all the people here. I have loved helping the parents and students by creating a positive experience for them,” shared Tamiya.

“Tamiya works efficiently and has proven herself to be very professional. I appreciate her willingness to go above and beyond to serve our clients and our staff,” added Marisa Womack, Director of Operations.

Tamiya recently graduated from Longwood University with a degree in psychology. She plans to attend Jefferson College of Health Sciences in the fall.
