Robin Paige Club (Lillington)
Growing where the need takes us.
About the Robin Paige Club
During the following two years, local research and assessments were performed and conversations took place in the community about bringing this much-needed program to Lillington. During this time, the committee evolved into a Boys & Girls Club Advisory Council with Mr. George Womble elected as Chairperson of the Advisory Council. Mr. Womble was instrumental in assembling the current Boys & Girls Club Advisory Council and working with the Harnett County Board of Commissioners to advocate for the location of the Club at the newly renovated Shawtown Community Development Center.
Ultimately, the Womble Family made an incredibly generous and transformational gift to start the Boys & Girls Club in memory of Robin Paige Womble. Robin, a native of Lillington, was an educator and had an incredibly compassionate heart for kids from disadvantaged circumstances. Robin spent much of her life working in inner-city schools in Atlanta, Georgia and Watts, Los Angeles- one of the most impoverished and dangerous neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The Club was named the “Robin Paige Club” and will forever serve kids in her honor.
