Meet the Site Coordinator

Hi! My name is Yashica Newby, and I am the new Site Coordinator at the Buchanan Site here in Baton Rouge. I was born and raised in the Motor City, Detroit, Michigan. I recently relocated to Baton Rouge last year in July. I have a smart and wonderful 7-year-old daughter. I have worked in a school setting for the past 20+ years, with my last job being the Graduate Program Specialist at Wayne State University. I look forward to a wonderful year being a part of Boys and Girls Clubs!
