For Immediate Release
New York, NY – Boys & Girls Club of Frederick County Maryland, a safe haven for young boys and girls in the area since 2010, announced today that MBK Sports client and Indianapolis Colts defensive back Nate Hairston has been named to their Board of Directors as an honorary member. As part of his duties, Hairston will make public appearances at the club, attend fundraisers and allow the use of his name and likeness to promote the club and its mission.
After he attended Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, Hairston earned a scholarship to attend Temple University. After his first three seasons as a wide receiver, Hairston switched to cornerback and never looked back. He was drafted in the 5th Round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts and quickly earned himself a spot on the 53-man roster as the Colts starting nickel cornerback.
“The Boys and Girls Club has meant so much to myself and my family over the years,” Hairston said. “I’m just grateful that God has put me in a position where I can give back to my community and serve as a positive role model for the youth in the area."
“We are thrilled to partner with Boys & Girls Club of Frederick County on this prestigious opportunity for Nate,” said Eugene Lee, President of MBK Sports. “Nate is always looking for ways to use his platform to make a difference, especially with the youth of our generation. His leadership position within the club will provide a dynamic vehicle to pay it forward and impact lives in a positive and meaningful way.”
“Nate Hairston’s involvement with Boys & Girls Club of Frederick County (BGCFC) will be a tremendous opportunity for the club members,” said Lisa McDonald the Executive Director at Boys & Girls Club of Frederick County. “They can imagine and dream, just like Nate did, and they will certainly look to him as a positive role model.”
