“I’m proud to say I was born and raised in Jackson and don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. I have fond memories of learning to swim at the Y here, and going there after school until my parents could pick me up. Instead of going home and watching junk TV, I was given the opportunity to make friends, participate in activities and get some exercise, and I think I’m better for it today. I’m a huge proponent of everything the Y can give back to the community!”
