Surprise Crew: Miami Boys & Girls Club
During the spring’s teacher strike in Oklahoma, some very difficult decisions had to made by both educators…and parents…when it came to where their children would be during normal school hours. Except it was not a tough decision for Mackenzie Garst. She’s the Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa County, and she says it was the easiest decision she’s made, opening the doors of the club to every child in Ottawa County, and making sure they had a place to go while their teachers marched in Oklahoma City.
So we wanted to not only meet Mackenzie, but also tour the new location of the Boys and Girls club…and while we were at it, recruit the help of the Miami Fire Department, and Chana and Nate of Frozen Cabana. Of course, we had to take along the KOAM Surprise Crew!
