In 1973, the women of the Morristown Pilot Club observed girls had a big need in their community. Girls ages 6 to 18 and from all income brackets needed a safe place to gather afterschool and in the summers. They needed good role models and mentors, plenty of encouragement to
build positive life-skills, and a fun all-girl environment to help them grow strong, smart and bold. So they put their ideas into action and founded a Girls Club for Hamblen County.
By 1977, their idea had grown into so many girl members that a groundbreaking ceremony was needed for a new building to house them. At the 1978 Annual Banquet, guest speaker Pat Head Summit said of the Girls Club, "You will touch a lot of people. You will probably never know what doors you open, what opportunities you are giving a lot of young girls..."
Now known as Girls Inc. of Hamblen County, our club serves over 400 girls each year. Girls from any Hamblen County school have the opportunity to come to the Center for fun educational programming by riding a Girls Inc. bus. Each year, those same buses take girls on educational field trips that widen their world view. Fun, friendship, learning and growing is all happening at Girls Inc. of Hamblen County.
