SILOAM SPRINGS -- Boys and Girls Club of Western Benton County recently announced the January Volunteer and Youths of the Month for all four sites in Siloam Springs, Gentry, Decatur and Gravette.

Mike Wiebe was chosen to be the January 2019 Volunteer of the Month for Boys and Girls Club of Western Benton County. Mike has served on the corporate board of Boys and Girls Club of Western Benton County for four years.

Joey Rockwell, 10, was selected to be the January 2019 Youth of the Month for the Siloam Springs location of Boys and Girls Club of Western Benton County. Joey loves the Boys and Girls Club because of the opportunity that he has to play sports and see his friends. Joey hopes to be a scientist when he grows up and his favorite thing to do at the Club is taking the trash out at the end of the night. "Joey is a kid of many talents. He has an incredible ability to sleep and match his shirt with his sweats, but beyond that, he is a joy to be around and makes our Club a better place" said Stephen Johnston, director of operations.

Dominick Dozier, 5, was chosen by the staff of the Gentry extension as the January 2019 Youth of the Month for Gentry.

We appreciate all that she does and are glad to have her," said Ethan Pendergraft, SPARK site coordinator.
