Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) August 24, 2011
Alicia Jurney Whitlock, Attorney at Smith Debnam Narron Drake Saintsing & Myers, LLP, has been elected Vice-chair of the Board of Directors for Haven House Services in Raleigh. Haven House Services was established in 1973 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for at-risk youth and their families. The organization helps struggling young people and their families develop positive and successful relationships at home, at school, and in the community. Alicia has been an active volunteer with this organization, and she is passionate about the individuals who benefit from the services Haven House provides.
On behalf of Smith Debnam, Alicia donated boxing equipment to Demetrious Jones, a 19-year old competing for a position on the US Olympic Boxing Team. Demetrious trains in Raleigh with Haven House's Second Round Boxing program, which serves youthful offenders and gang-involved youth between 11-18 years old. The program uses boxing, weight training, and other forms of exercise to teach youth teamwork, self-discipline, time management, leadership, healthy living, and other pro-socialization elements. Demetrious went on to make the USA Boxing team and will be competing through the summer for a position on the Olympic team.
Alicia and Smith Debnam want to congratulate Demetrious on his accomplishments, and we are thrilled to see such a positive role model come through this program.
