Paddie has worked for the Marshall ISD as their Director of Communications & Community Relations and then transitioned into the role of grant administrator for the 21st Century/ACE Grant partnering the Club with the MISD.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs play such an important part in any community, large or small. The programs provided by the Club engage and educate our youth in a safe environment, and that goes a long way in shaping these kids into prominent citizens of our communities as adults. I am thrilled to be part of an organization that impacts our youth and communities in such a positive way. I look forward to building on the great things these Clubs are already doing throughout East Texas.” said Paddie
Paddie will serve as part of the administrative team, marketing and focusing on corporate giving and grants for the entire organization. Paddie is the first employee hired since the merge between the Boys & Grils Clubs of the Big Pines and the Boys & Girls Club of Gregg County.

The Paddies are donors, Chris was a former board president, and we worked together closely in the ACE grant.” said President & CEO, Bryan Partee. “Then, you add in her grant nd marketing experience, and it is a big boost for the Club,” Partee concluded.
