BUCKHANNON — Stockert Youth and Community Center (SYCC) will be holding a town hall meeting at the Safety Complex, located at the Buckhannon Fire Department and Buckhannon City Police Department on Thursday, August 11. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
SYCC is looking to expand their facility in order to better accommodate the children and hopefully in the future, with a larger gymnasium, host sporting events, concerts, etc. Thursday’s meeting will give the public a chance to ask any questions they might have about the center as well as any recommendations or suggestions they might have.
SYCC’s Director, Debora Brockleman will be in attendance taking questions and offering any needed information. It will give the public an opportunity to meet with the staff and see how the students respond in such a positive environment with a video presentation created by one of Stockert’s students.
During a recent talent show, children attending SYCC were given the chance to participate in creating videos, dancing and more. The winner was chosen by Director Brockleman. 8-year-old student, Henley Tiffner won a trophy for best created video. In the video, Henley was able to capture Stocker Youth in action while showing every room in the Center as well as interviewing students and staff.
On Thursday during the meeting, Henley’s video will be presented to show the community and our first responders exactly how Stockert Youth and Community Center works on a daily basis.
Staff member, Zackary Karickhoff expressed, “I love working the kids, there such great children with bright futures. In Henley’s video, you will see just how much the children love Stockert Youth Center. I wouldn’t want to do anything else.”
Video creator, Henley Tiffner expressed how excited she is for her upcoming video presentation. “I’m excited for everyone to see my video. It was really easy to make the video but running up and down the hallways and up and down the stairs was really tiring. I know it’ll be worth it though,” said Tiffner.
Come join the community on Thursday, August 11 at 5:30 p.m. to learn all about our community’s wonderful Stockert Youth and Community Center.
