Driven, Loyal, Passionate

“Sometimes doing your best is not good enough. Sometimes you must do what is required.” – Winston Churchill

Stephanie Johnson has gotten where she is today by working hard and having a passion for what she does. “I have been blessed to have a career in the nonprofit world,” she says. “I believe there is a tremendous value in this profession, and I encourage young people to pursue a career path helping others.”

In addition to Johnson’s leadership, the Boys & Girls Club program is led by two dynamic women, Shauna Blanche, Director of Elementary Programs and Paris Lewis, Director of Secondary Programs. Both women are passionate about changing lives at Boys & Girls Club. The Club has been serving kids of Jefferson City for more than 20 years. The Club provides a safe place for children to go when school is not in session, with programs that focus on academic success, good character, and healthy lifestyles.

“The Boys & Girls Club opens its doors to kids most in need and does not charge for its services,” Blanche explains. “Whether a child needs a hot meal, help with homework, a new pair of shoes, or a safe home away from home, the Club is there.” Johnson, Blanche, and Lewis are leading the way and blazing a trail for future leaders in our community.
