VINELAND – Kevin Laue, a former Manhattan College basketball player, visited the Boys & Girls Club of Vineland to spend a fun-filled and thought-provoking session with youth members.

Laue is the first one-armed player in the history of college basketball. He spoke with Boys & Girls Club members about the dangers of bullying and overcoming obstacles in order to make your dreams come true.

Laue was one of several guest speakers throughout the summer and early fall who engaged club youths in thoughtful discussions about their futures, how they can become good citizens and how they can develop a favorable character. The program was supported through a Cumberland County/Juvenile Justice Commission Community Partnership grant that helped youths develop life skills and positive behaviors.
