What it would mean to be inducted into the Greater Flint Area Youth hall of Fame:

Being inducted into the youth hall of fame is an honor. I feel privileged to now be with some of the greatest bowlers in the Flint area. Spending my entire youth participating in the Greater Flint Youth Bowling Association was a memorable experience. To be inducted into the Youth Hall of Fame would mean the world to me to show all aspiring young bowlers that dedication, hard work, and determination will pay off and result in wonderful achievements.

Congratulations Allison and welcome to the Greater Flint Youth Hall of Fame!

 What it would mean to be inducted into the Greater Flint Area Youth hall of Fame:

For more than 12 years since I first picked up a bowling ball I have been involved with the game in the Greater Flint area. To say that it is a major part of my life would be an understatement. Through bowling I’ve grown to know many people and have met my best friends through the game.  When I made the decision to become a high school coach, it was to give back to a game that had given me so much throughout the years, and as a way to keep involved in the youth programs that had become my home, even as I progressed into the adult leagues.
To be inducted into the Greater Flint Youth Hall of Fame would be an overwhelming honor to me, as it would represent everything I had done as a youth bowler in the Greater Flint Area and be a final award from the game that has become much more than a hobby, but a lifestyle.

Congratulations Scott and welcome to the Greater Flint Youth Hall of Fame!
