Weant Street Community Kickoff Cookout is April 14

Randall Hyde, executive director of the North Rowan Connections Mentoring Program, is partnering with Chris Sifford’s Boys II Men Manhood Training to present “The Weant Street Community Kickoff Cookout” from noon-3 p.m. Saturday, April 14.
The event at Weant Street Apartments is intended to introduce the community to organizations and future sessions. The N.R.C. Mentoring Program is an association of North Rowan alums and supporters who are focused on helping children in the North Rowan area become better citizens, and to groom them for success in school and life.
The program already has on-site sessions at North Rowan Middle School as well as off-site programs with certified mentors. Boys II Men Manhood Training is an agent that identifies adolescent males and creates a 12-point system to restore character, integrity and independence.
N.R.C. Men’s Mentoring Program and Boys II Men Manhood Training went out into the community to develop relationships before the cookout, voter registration drive, dialogue boxes on job creation, motivational speakers and spiritual counseling. The goal is to feed at least 200 people hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn and potato chips.

Those who have committed to attend so far are Joe Nixon, NRHS head football coach, and Timothy Bridges Sr., pastor of Shady Grove Baptist Church.
