Bill Mace Homes Encourages Youth

Bill Mace HomesClarksville, TN – On November 22nd, 2011, in the office of Bill Mace Homes, two LEAP Youth Interns were awarded Tennessee Titans tickets in recognition of their academic achievement and community outreach efforts.

Pastor Tommy Vallejos was approached by Bill Mace about developing innovative ways to encourage youth to be productive and responsible citizens. Given Pastor Tommy’s intimate knowledge and involvement with the LEAP Organization, he recommended recognizing two distinguished youth from LEAP.

The youths selected for this award were Stacey Jenkins who attends West Creek High School and Stephon Jenkins who attends West Creek Middle School.

“I was excited to hear about the opportunity to recognize both brothers. Stacey since his involvement in the program has always been a stellar student. While his younger brother, Stephon, had a few setbacks earlier on, has made significant strides both academically and behaviorally. I am extremely proud of them” commented Richard “Reason” Garrett.

In addition to generously sponsoring the youth, Bill Mace also provided additional tickets so that both parents could attend the game with their children.

“As important as it is to encourage youth through positive reinforcement, I believe it is equally important to encourage the family unit as a whole. It was my honor to be able to present the entire family with this modest award and appreciate the parents for being active in their children’s lives” said Bill Mace.
