Welcome Officer Dan!
September 27th, 2012
This school year has brought Steil Club a great new addition, Officer Dan Myers! We thought we should get to know him a little bit better, so we asked him a few questions...
Q) What is your history/experience with GRPD?
A) I have been with the police department for 12 years. I spent 4 years on patrol, 1 year in the warrant unit, and 7 years as a Community Officer. I am extremely proud to be a member of the Grand Rapids Police Department.
Q) Why did you want to take the position at BGC?
A) I do a lot of youth coaching and really enjoyed the positive interactions with the kids. I have 3 kids of my own, a 12 year old son, 10 year old son, and 7 year old daughter. I put in for this position because I truly believe that we can make a difference in the lives of youth by offering them a positive influence.
Q) What has been your favorite part about the Clubs so far?
A) I have been learning how much the Boys & Girls Club offers to the kids in the community. I'm also getting to know the kids. I'm having a great time and am very impressed with BGC. Many of the kids would have limited options if not for the Club. It provides another option which is much more positive than some of the negative things that go on around them.
Q) Tell us something fun about yourself that we probably don't know.
A) I don't like tomatoes. You probably didn't know that about me! :)
