Newark, New Jersey
Air Force Veteran
Arthur Myers attended the Boys Club in Newark, N.J. continuously from age 7 through high school. Two weeks after high school graduation, he joined the United States Air Force. Twenty years of service to his country and two college degrees later, Myers stayed on with the Air Force in a civilian capacity as Director of Services, the highest civilian rank that can be held in this branch of the service. At the Boys Club, Myers found sports, interaction with other kids and lessons for success. Myers says that going to the Club affected him fundamentally: “There’s no limit to what you can do in life. So much of what I am now is because of the Boys Club.”
