McCook, NE: With the Coaches Challenge officially ending on October 31, 2014, The TeamMates Mentoring Program of McCook is proud to announce that they recruited 12 new mentors during the campaign. For the program-wide challenge, 24 chapters turned in a mentor-recruitment goal. The McCook chapter set a goal to recruit 10 new mentors by the end of the campaign. These six chapters met or exceeded their goal: McCook, Burwell, Fillmore County, Freeman, Holt County and Wisner-Pilger.
President of the McCook TeamMates Board of Directors, Stacy Priebe, responded to the impact, “We thank the coaches in the McCook community who lent their names to our annual campaign for mentors and enabled us to recruit 12 new mentors. Their support has enabled us to serve more youth.”
