Boys and Girls Club of Durant Names New Director

Posted:

DURANT, OK---- After a five month long search, the Boys and Girls Club of Durant has finally named Jason Sands as their permanent director.

Sands has been involved with the Boy and Girls club since he was a young boy and has previously worked for clubs in Kansas and North Texas.

His first day on the job was yesterday and he said he has big plans in store for the kids.

"It's our job to keep our kids off the street and to build their character, leadership, health and life skills and artistic ability," Sands said. "We focus on fitness and recreation, but our most important component is the educational side. We continue to help them grow and make learning fun for our kids." 

The Durant chapter serves around 130 kids a day, but Sands said he expects those numbers to grow.  These kids range in age from six to 18.
