Introducing Ariana King-Pfeiffer, an outstanding member of the Jelleff Recreation Center Club. She’s a 13 year old student at Rose L. Hardy Middle School located in the Glover Park neighborhood in D.C.
This 7th grader has been a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs family for 3 years. Like a lot of the youth that attend the Club for the first time, she was very shy and wasn’t sure if it would be a good fit. After a few visits, she immediately gelled with other members and staff. The Jelleff Club become a safe place for her to be herself and make friends.
Program Director, Tarayra Staton describes Ariana as friendly. “She is liked by everyone in the Club whether the members are 6 years old or teens. She always has a smile on her face and helps transition new Club members into the Jelleff family.” Some of her favorite programs are “Girls on the Run” and all-girls basketball. She also participates in summer camp activities. “Summer camp was awesome! I made new friends every day, played sports, went swimming and did arts projects.” said Ariana. Outside of her time at Club, she enjoys casting shadows and shading in her drawings.
