Boys & Girls Club CEO serves on Children’s Cabinet

Lynne Richman Bell
The Boys & Girls Club of Fauquier executive director has accepted an appointment of the Virginia Children’s Cabinet.

“I am absolutely humbled and honored to be asked to represent the more than 61,000 youth that Boys & Girls Clubs serve in the commonwealth,” Lynne Richman Bell said.

Gov. Ralph Northam last summer the Children’s Cabinet to address challenges that exist for youngsters across the commonwealth and to focus its efforts on several key priorities. Key concerns include early childhood development and school readiness, nutrition and food security, systems of care and safety for school-aged youth.

“Boys & Girls Clubs have earned a seat at the table by providing quality program services to youth in Virginia who need us most,” adds James Pierce, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Virginia and the Virginia Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs president. “This is a great opportunity for us to advocate for kids at the state level.”

A Sumerduck resident, Ms. Bell has worked as the Boys & Girls Club executive director since August 2014. She previously worked for several different educational institutions.

The Children’s Cabinet meets quarterly in Richmond and the work groups meet intermittently to complete established objectives.
