Three years ago, a parent approached Principal Spreitzer about his interest in mentoring boys at Hometown school. Gincy Hartin’s hope was to inspire the boys to become strong, positive pillars of the Hometown community.
“I was excited about the idea from the very beginning, because mentoring is something that I’m passionate about, and because the club would be a way that I could support what the school is doing for our kids,” said Hartin.
From that meeting, the Pillars Club was born and started in October 2015. Two dads, Mr. Hartin and Mr. Matt Kenah, meet with a group of 4th and 5th-grade boys every Wednesday during lunch at Hometown to have a conversation, invite guest speakers, and inspire the boys to become leaders.
“Being involved in Pillars Club provides me with a means of making a positive contribution to the community, while hopefully making a lasting impact on the lives of our young men,” said Hartin.
