Developing social skills and self-confidence are as important to children as accumulating knowledge, but it requires the help not just of the schools but of the whole community, which is why Boys, Girls, Adults Community Development Center (BGACDC) holds events like the King and Queen Ball.
"In my day, activities like 4H gave lots of us the self-confidence to participate and compete in activities and enjoy them," said Beatrice Shelby, executive director of BGACDC. "Most youngsters are naturally shy but activities like the King and Queen Ball pull them out of their shell. Confidence and pride are essential to their development and happiness."

Michael Levine, LISC’s general counsel since 1986, and a longstanding member of Rural LISC's Advisory Committee (RAC), has been named to The National Law Journal list of “America’s 50 Outstanding General Counsel.” Singling him out for his innovation and commitment to pro bono work, the prestigious legal journal noted that Levine “considers himself a ‘yes’ lawyer, not a ‘no’ lawyer,” and that his job is “to make the mission real on the ground.”
